He usually led or was near the top of the team in takeaways. He was a pretty good pick pocket. So yes he did win puck battles just not in the way you want them to be won (physically overpowering someone).

I know some can't let go of their hate for him. But he is not being asked by the Nucks to be their top guy like he was here. He will be a secondary player getting mismatches that he should be able to take advantage of.
