As long as it's understood that he was the support cast. His shooting percentage took a huge jump this year as well. It's not like Damien Brunner, who dominated the level he was at. We can't really say the same about Raffl not only for Leksands, but in Austria as well. I hope he's a defensive ace, because everything points to high skepticism that he can be a scoring threat at the NHL level. I'm all for pulling guys from Europe, but we seem to really scrape the bottom of the barrel doing so aside from Bobrovsky.

He'll play in the Olympics, so that'll be cool.
