The real problem I have with him is that everyone else that could potentially sit provides more. The options would be Boyle, Powe, Asham, Dorsett. Boyle and Powe provide penalty killing that he doesn't. Asham and Dorsett provide grit that he doesn't. They all provide about the same tiny amount of offense. I'd rather have any of those 4 guys in the lineup over Pyatt.
Sums up how I feel about him, I was hoping he'd provide a little more than he does, but thems the breaks. The others are better options not only for the reasons you listed but they're not painfully slow either.
