His puck management is horrible, he makes terrible decisions with the puck and they usually/often result in the opposition taking over possession.



If that was his floor then his play would have garnered him a further look there, yet he is now on the wing.
So because he got promoted and now receives top 6 minutes with better line mates that means he's no longer capable of being an excellent third line center? That doesn't make sense. He's already proven that he can handle a defensive center role. There is no "he can't cut it" ina third line role. He's proven over this season and last that he can excel in that role. Not sure if you're watching the same player as me, or maybe you just have unrealistic expectations on what a third line center is and their role.
