That's what pushes fringe NHLers to the everyday quality-type player that Gorges has become.

Pateryn may be similar to Gorges in how he plays the game, but wether or not he ever becomes as effective and dependable as Gorges is will come down to how hard the kid works & how hard he's willing to push himself.

TIme will tell...

one thing is for sure, his odds of making the habs are insanely higher under MT's watch then they would have been under JM!
I definitely don't miss the days where JM used to bench our young guys for every mistake. Hopefully, Pateryn will flourish under MT who will be using him more slowly but gradually.
