I've been watching the ones where whenever the puck touches his stick it more often than not results in the other team gaining possession shortly afterward. Many here point to his skills but seemingly ignore that his puck management is horrible. The NHL is not a developmental league; he may not have much more time in a Jets uni if he doesn't start putting up some points. If his contributions are limited to defense then it is easy to see how the team might eventually move toward a defensive center that offers a considerable size upgrade.
