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.
Your curiosity is definitely founded, it amazes Avs fans how intelligent he is through the neutral zone as well. One minute you'll see him steal the puck the next he carries it through the neutral zone and starts a cycle or gets a shot on net or finds Landeskog streaking down the wing.
