Explain why he's called that? If so, it's because Leafs fans gave him that nickname since he always tries to dangle defenders like he's a superstar and holds on to it way too long.
PRetty much spot on.
I feel like this is such an appropriate quote for these boards...
"Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level, and then beat you with experience"-Mark Twain
Mitchell can do more crunching along the boards. He's fairly reliable defensively. I've seen him quite a number of times as the high guy cutting across the ice to force a puck carrier to make a play. He understands what he needs to do when his team doesn't have the puck. He's good in his own end.
EC floats. Avery is mediocre in his own end of the ice--loses a lot of battles. In the other team's end Avery is a lot better.
One major plus as a bottom 6 player is that he has far better puck control than your typical grinder. He's very useful for both winning the puck down low and keeping it there for long shifts. Don't think that timewasting style translates well to a scoring line role but in so long as we don't have a locked in #1 LW we have to accept compromises.
Solid role player , with decent hands in tight spaces along the boards and cycle . Solid citizen , knows his role works hard,fits the cap . The team is winning with him in the lineup and he rarely takes a minor penalty to boot , which is a huge Plus in any coaches book
