I think he's been getting better game by game. The idea that he "doesn't go into the corners" is pretty off to me. Sure, maybe he's not the best at battling for the puck (not everyone that height is a Brad Marchand) but I see him win his fair share of one-on-one's.

Not saying he's not expendable by any means, but people associating Kelly and Peverley's lack of production to him is pretty false, IMO. None of them, as a unit or individuals, have been very good so far.

This seems like another "Trent Whitfield" type situation to me. People have made up their mind based on initial impressions that the guy isn't good so he has to be Ovechkin before they'll admit he's any good, much less improving.
