He would be an effective bottom 6 player for most teams but he is a tweener top 6er at best. Expect him to play top 6 and help carry the offense? Fail.
I just have seen this story play out before, I hope the Rangers stay away.
Disagree. I think you discredit his skill. I think he has a top-6 skillset, especially when you throw in his size and good speed package.
Guy's got solid hands and can rip the puck. He's strong on the boards. Good forechecker. He's a great complimentary player, he works very well with Toews/Kane, helps give them some more room on the ice.
His problem has always been lack of constant motion. He coasts at times. This year, he wasn't coasting, and he was an extremely effective player. Sometimes players just figure it out later in their careers, especially larger players.
