I'm excited that he played so well. The kid has always had elite vision, but he suffers from not really being a shooting threat. When he made that behind the back pass to Richie on the PP I was actually pretty ticked off about it. Despite the goal, he really should have put that puck on net himself.

He's been inconsistent for most of his career. If he can find some consistency in his game, he'll be an excellent player for us.
I disagree. I think when he faked to the circle, if he let loose a shot he had a couple of guys in his way. Richie was completely wide open because Brass drew the guys to him, I thought it was a really smart move to dump it back to Richie (and a well executed pass to top that off, as well.)
