The biggest difference in his game is that he finally has put on the weight that allows him to play his game effectively. Oh, and injuries forced Therrien to give him quality wingers. Since then, he's been putting up points.
No way it's ALL THERIEN, but Therien played a part in him having a strong year. In games he's played very well he's fed him more ice time with better players, even putting him on wing when needed.
