The most important thing seems to be that he works hard, but also that he works smartly. There is effort and he understands hockey basics: where to be, how to get there, and effective play.

There have been points in time when he and Porter have been hemmed in -- the booing shift in the Devils game was their line -- but they don't give up easy chances.
