He is not a guy that anyone should build around because he is a soft winger. If that is the identity that you think the Leafs should have, fine, I think it should be more like Wendel Clarke.

He is a fine piece to have on your team, he just isn't a guy I want the team built around. He is great if he is the 4th most important player on your team, not so much if he is your go to guy. He sure looks like he gets rattled in Boston and he practically runs away from contact. Is that really the guy you want your team built around?

Not me. He would be great to have on any team in the role of scoring winger and shootout guy, not as the guy who everyone looks at to see how they should play the game.
