Points per 60 on the PP:
2012-13: 0.00 (small sample size)
2011-12: 4.96

2009-10: 8.01 (small sample size)

+/- for a grinder isn't the end-all...if you're playing against the best competition, your numbers will look worse.

Here's the Corsi relative to quality of competition for this year:

Coyle - 1.105
Koivu - 1.085
Parise - 1.057
Brodin - 0.816
Suter - 0.741
Brodziak - 0.658

He's fourth best among forwards. Meaning he's doing a better job of pushing the play up the ice than most of his teammates.

Also if we look at his PDO (shooting percentage plus save percentage on ice), he's the second lowest on the team. Meaning that he's probably playing better than his numbers indicate and it's likely he will "catch up" and start producing more (like Cullen and Setoguchi did). Oddly enough, I expected last year he would have a high PDO but it wasn't far from average.

Now, non-stats, he's been up and down. I've seen him making some poor plays with the puck. Last year he looked very good with the puck and was assertive and controlling play. This year he's more reacting to the play and a step slow. But he's had some better games lately and hopefully he continues to play better.

Thanks for that brah.
