In other words basically nothing of value.
If he flatlines to a player that gets 25-30 points with no PP time capable of playing shutdown minutes and PK duties like he showed he could last season... that's a pretty decent 3rd center.

Habs have been handly outplaying most teams at ES, largely due to Pleks line and Markov's pairing being very strong in tough minutes. However the only team I'd call good at ES was Ottawa and they beat the Habs handily there, albeit on a back-to-back.

Subban should be a big help though, this could easily end up being an above average 5 on 5 club between two top defensemen, a strong two-way top line based on Plekanec and Price in net.
