He's also the softest guy on the ice and compared to Latendresse..... yet he's had three fights this year, winning two and drawing on another. He's got a little bit of a mean streak.
On ice Work-ethic /= Character
Style of play /= Level of Toughness
Physicality /= Defensive ability
(/= means does not equal for those confused)
I'm not saying he's perfect or that he's driven to be a power forward, there's just lots of unfounded hate and speculation that's getting thrown around. I agree with WS, there's room to grow for Mantha, it was a break out season for him but he's still capable of adaptation and growth. Big guys develop later and style of play can be included in that development IMO.
