I think that's a convoluted way of saying that he has an OK +/- through 11 games, right? I don't think there has ever been much question about his shut-down defensive ability. But his continuing lack of offensive growth is starting to get a bit worrying/frustrating. It's especially exacerbated when he is now playing with more gifted linemates and the team is starved for goals to boot. By no means am I pessimistic about the kid, but it's about time we see more.
