Going forward, I can envision him as a very effective third line winger.
Indeed. You're right. But what about the regular season? Does he create scoring chances for the team? For his linemates? Not really. Not to mention that he can't score in shootout.

Does he hit? No. I hope Bergevin won't make the same mistake as with Desharnais. At 2-2.5M, I wouldn't be against an extension.
