The fact remains that he's an offense first player who hasn't even broken 50 pts once in 6 years despite getting ample offensive opportunities and is average to below average in other aspects of his game. That screams mediocre to me.
You can make all the excuses that you want to make for him but he has produced mediocre on ice results thus far in his career.
As i said before, he has a great work ethic and is a high character guy who will step in for his teammates if need be but thus far in his career, he has been a mediocre overall player but he also has room for growth so he could very well turn into a legit, good overall player.
I don't need to make excuses for the player. Not sure why you think I would need to.
You're the one making preposterous statements about the player being "mediocre".
Probably 29 other clubs would pick up this player in an instant.
