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. They support the defensemen like the defensemen need, coming deep enough to allow for outlets and then not blowing the zone before the puck is out. Simple, basic, effective.
It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it. - Aristotle
