Jiggy, I watched every minute of that Boston game last night, and I'm still not sure what you saw.
It was essentially the same thing we saw here, only for a longer period of time because he played more minutes.
He centered a pass from behind the net in the first period while the goalie was badly out of position, he had a nice chip pass to a teammate to get out of the defensive zone, and he dumped the puck in a few times after "leading" a rush, and made a few simple passes back to the point along the boards.
And he also had a couple of weak ass shots at the net while skating down the wing because he didn't have the foot speed to cut in and take the puck to the net. I also saw him get mop up duty on their first PP with about 15 seconds left in it, but that looked more to be a situation where he was put out on the ice because his line was next.
If he turns out to be a decent third line player, which right now looks to me to be his ceiling, I"m not going to lose any sleep over it.
