I like how 95% of the time he is unnoticeable in his own zone, mainly because he usually gets a decent pass or clear round the boards before the forecheckers are on him, instead of fumbling the puck round for 5 seconds and getting the whole team trapped in the zone.

He will never probably be anything more than a decent puck moving 4 who can play a bit on the PP, but frankly him and Schenn as two of our 3/4/5 for the foreseeable future would be a good start on D.
Agreed.

I'm just loathing seeing him getting traded and he's going to have a Patrick Sharp or Dennis Seidenberg like career progression because the Flyers never gave him a legitimate chance.
