I may be in the minority but I don't see much of anything in Olver. He's not talented enough to be a top 6 forward, he's terrible at faceoffs so he can't play center, he's not a big guy and is pretty easy to push around, and isn't good defensively nor does he kill penalties, so he doesn't bring much value there. I just don't see this guy being much of anything. He's a 4th liner at best and I'd love to see him replaced by a prototypical 4th line center.
