When PA was here he continued to improve his game and played with intensity and competed for the puck. A flawed player? Yes as is KO, Moulson and Boyes. There is no reason to question motivation for the duration of the contract since the work ethic is there.

I posted the updates on PA because so many people felt that JT gift wrapped all of PA's points.
I believe that PA's passing will fit in well with Duchense and Landeskog. JT will get his numbers because he is as driven a player as I've ever seen but I don't think his goals will be the same. Unfortunately he'll concentrate more on setting up KO and Moulson than trying to score himself.

Besides wouldn't we prefer to have PA on the roster instead of Boulton or Reasoner? We could just as easily signed Boyes to replace Rolston. No reason that we couldn't have PA, KO and Boyes.

If the isles decide they want a playmaker on Tavares wing, I'd guess that Strome or
Kabanov would get a chance.
