Underutilized to say the least. For instance in the game against Tampa, Ryan Malone boarded Eric Staal. Now, you would think that someone would fight Malone the next time they had the chance. But no, the one guy who was brought in to add toughness (Westgarth) was put on the ice for one shift after the penalty.
He's on the 4th line averaging at most 3 mins per game. With Muller's stressing of using the whole line-up, it is really odd that he finds the need to dress Kevin when he uses him so little. If he's brought in to fight when things get chippy, why didn't he go after Malone. There is really no more important of a player than the captain (I know, debatable). Just so ... weird.
His play? Honestly, I haven't seen enough to make a decision yet. The only thing I've noticed is that he's slow, but that's to be expected.
