I like him as a player. Last year he was prone to bad turnovers/penalties late in close games. That's not the case this year. He's a third of our only consistent line. Goes to the dirty areas to get goals or set screens. Fights and sticks up for his teammates.

Most of the intangibles Noel will talk about for him is having the attitude and playing a tough game night in, night out. Leads by example that way.

For PK, he's ok but definitely not on our first unit.

Pretty much that. 100% agree.
