Nothing is happening on the majority of his even strength shifts. He looks slow and lethargic out there. For a team that has many problems through the first 4 games, I'd say hes the biggest one.
Agree totally, the points do not say much. He's been pretty invisible imo and doesn't give me a warm and fuzzy feeling as our future 2nd line center going forward. The only good thing about him right now is his cap hit. He needs to pick it up fast.
