He has been exactly as a lot of you described. Looks like an NHL player out there and displays a lot of skill and hockey smarts. Seldom makes the wrong move or pass, and has real chemistry with some of the best in the game with Malkin, and Crosby when he plays with him. Has come close to scoring but has not yet.

The long and short of it is though that he has shown enough to impress Shero, unless I am misreading, because I am fairly certain that was what getting rid of Lovejoy was all about. He will get at least the rest of this shortened year to show he can put it together. Given the empty cupboard at wing the Pens have in the system it is not an unreasonable notion.
