And even if JOB is more aggressive on the PK than a lot of other guys, and allows him to take away lanes, or get a chance to have a break, or create a break (he had one tonight, and I think Condra had one earlier this year). Also, with two big bodies in Phillips and Methot spending most of the PK time down low it lowers the risk in being too aggressive
He's an energy player and energy guys are supposed to play the PK. He's alright at it, and plays more than offensive guys like Spezza and Alfie, but that doesn't make him the best.

I agree with you about the D though.
