This is his 6th year, unless they have the wings completely disregard positioning for the sake of gaining the puck, his faceoffs aren't likely to improve much at all.
If the Hawks didn't have 12.2 mil in cap space on either side of him, it wouldn't be so aggravating. I haven't written him off as an effective 2nd line center yet, but I've seen nothing to suggest he's better there than at the 3C spot. It's only 7 games, I think another dozen games or so will paint a clearer picture.
