On the other hand, his work ethic, faceoff ability and defensive responsibility let the line with Propp and Kerr be very effective as a unit. He also chipped in an effective amount of offense.

I think for me, my decision of how effective they are will depend on who they are facing somewhat..
He was the responsible guy on the line, he had enough speed to drop back on defense and was good and smart enough for counterattacks. To me it's a case of gestalt.
