101 is highly critical of FF's play, and he frequents the stat book to prove his point. There is a lot of truth in what he is saying, but I would temper his negativity and say that he produced offensively fairly consistently. The problem is, the Predator system does not allow offensive dynamo's to flourish unless they are also able to be consistent in the defensive end. Add to that, the Trotz way which is to hammer it into his young players through benching, public call outs, and healthy scratches any time a defensive zone mistake is continued, and you can see why it is hard for a young offensive player to find his groove. He had a spark and showed skill. He was effective on the PP. He created some chances at ES. The primary assist was a tip in by Gaustad on a great shot by FF that looked to be going in regardless.
