He can thread the needle through the most congested crease out there and find his brother for the one-timer (watch last night's PP goal).
I'm not in disagreement, but we don't have anybody as good as Edler or Sedin to run the point. When you don't have the horses, you have to work with what you have rather than try to turn your show pony into a work horse.
