Has he ever had a 50% faceoff season? Since you know it's just 1 a game/etc. he must've alternated year to year between 50% and 40%..... Backchecking you say? Like that play where he laid on the ice whining while the puck went the other way? Or when he gets caught too far up ice by completely abandoning his defensive duties as a center? He has a long ways to go as of now he is suspect defensively at ES, he can improve on that, that's what good players do.
