I thought Tye McGinn did a fantastic job in his spot and I would keep him there when Simmonds returns. Don't get me wrong I think Simmonds works harder than almost everyone else on the ice.
Simmonds doesn't finish. He's great along the boards, tough on the puck but after that, there isn't much there other than a big kid with nice size. I agree, he did very little to stimulate the power play while he was there. But that may have more to do with the team as a whole being completely out of sync and predictable.
