He's quiet offensively 90% of the time and two shifts later he's got a goal and an assist. He's a compiler. Not a bad thing, especially combined with his two way play.

His shot is good, but its not Semin/Heatley/Vanek good. He just scores goals.
I agree with all of this. Sharp has benefited from Kane being Kane. He's good but I still think he's overpaid for what he contributes to the team. Sharp is best at getting himself to the right spot and setting up for the shot. He rarely creates and that bothers me a bit.

Let me know when this happens again for any period of time. Otherwise I don't consider him a C. 2010 was three years ago.
