Some posters in here get mad when I write that he is a keeper with size and sound two ways play who is suffering from a mild case of tunnel vision. He also needs to be challenged from time to time. The icing on the cake is when I add that I prefer him on wings... can you hear overlords' footsteps?
Regarding the wings...I actually like what Therrien has been doing, playing him with Galchenyuk and Desharnais where he can effectively switch off. He had a terrible game faceoff wise today, but in the past few games he was better than Desharnais and Galchenyuk there. The whole team is inconsistent there though.
