He's not a tweener at all and that's the problem people have: recognizing what he is. We've been so thin for so long at wing that because this is Pittsburgh (where scrappy underdogs are heroes), and because he's made a few dandy plays on the top lines over the years, people want to believe he's better than he is.

Tyler Kennedy is a decent 3rd line type player, and that's all he is. No shame in that. He's fast, he is a decent puck handler, and he will do what the coaches ask, and occasionally he get go on mini-scoring streaks where he puts in the garbage / blasts a couple shots past the goalie. But his accuracy sucks and his vision / shot selection sucks. He is not a tweener on any team with decent winger depth. As soon as we get one or two more, that point will be diven home with authority.
