But.


As good as he has gotten and is, his skill set is somewhat replaceable.


He is mostly offense and as good as he is positionaly his stick/backcheck is weak at best. He gets demolished periodicaly.


In short he is another small offensive minded forward on a team chalked full of small offensive minded forwards.


I still would prefer him to Yak at this moment, or Hemsky, but he is what he is.

He gets a ton of Defensive zone starts, plays against the other teams toughest competition, creates chances a higher clip than anyone else on the team. He's been shuffled around different lines by his coach to get his linmmates goin (See Eakins "Slump Buster" comments).

Other than that...I agree...totally replaceable.
