A tendency.. Sounds like the guy has a sample size of a full career when in fact he has played a total of 2 playoff series (plus 1 playoff game prior to injury last year). One in which Torts decided to put him on a non-scoring line after one game.

The guy will get better. He has shown us time after time that he will impress us, and he does not even have a full season behind him. Previous NHL-players of short stature have generally been late bloomers.

As for those worried about his scoring, I believe he will score. He has scored plenty in every league he was in prior to the NHL and on national level. In the KHL he was still troubled by his hand, so that affected his shot quite a bit.

I really think we are in for a treat guys.
