Don't worry about the comments, he's a nice player. He's never going to be a legit center piece type player, but he's a nice secondary type player. He can skate, loves shooting, and has a pretty good nose for the net. He's going to get scoring chances wherever he lands. Defensively he's still learning and he showed good improvement. At times near the end of last season his backchecking was really good. He's never going to be a Selke level winger, but he shouldn't be a liability. I'd love him back in Detroit, but completely understand if they don't offer him a big contract since his situation is unique in that he's still too unproven at the NHL level.
