is he the perfect hockey player? no, never was
would I want him on my team? yes
I can have others do other jobs
he is simply awesome at what he does
His style of play is also different, but his production so far is at the lower end of my expectations, I think he should be scoring more ~0.9+ PPG. It's good that he's had a chance to play with Roy and now Eakin, especially as he expressed some concern over his chemistry with Benn. He needs a center who complements his style effectively, and that doesn't always mean the most talented player. His last year with the Rangers, he did not click with Gomez at all, and so played with Jason Ward before settling with Dubinsky. It would be awesome if he somehow found some success with Eakin, as then the Stars could roll lines like Eriksson-Benn-?, Whitney-Roy-Cole, and ?-Eakin-Jagr.
