He has 4th line skills.
He's actually on the 3rd line because we started the season with 2 rookies (Gallagher and Galchenyuk). His job was to look out for them.
He's whiffed on some beautiful set-ups by the rookies, but he crashes the net well and certainly hasn't looked out of place on the 3rd line. Based on his play for us this season I can't understand why he couldn't be a 3rd liner.
