Also, he was just as good as Datsyuk defensively last season... since you brought him up.
I'm not disputing that. I want to know if he can really be a guy teams can depend on offensively as well. I just found it hard to believe that a guy so young and refined defensively could be so good offensively as well and only have 34 GvAs. Thats unreal. Thats why I don't buy that he drives the offense like the article suggest. If you drive the offense the puck is usually on your stick and when its usually on your stick your GvA stat is gonna be inflated.
