Weird decisions and turnovers, doesn't try anything (passing plays or 1v1) just dump and chase and while he is responsible defensively he's not exactly a specialist either.
Bottom line is, I don't see any flair in him that would elevate him to NT status. There are at least a few brigher centers in KHL worth a try over him.
The dump and chase is what basically everybody is told to do on the Jets. If he doesn't he gets scratched. Dumb organization. Even some fans start to realize after the delirium over having a team again subsided. He is not responsible for the style of play he's forced to play by a team full of 3rd liners.
And please name those centers from the KHL. I want to give you a fair chance at least.
