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.

Like said above, he likes to hold onto the puck way too long.

Personally, I like his puck possession. If he's busy skating around with the puck, that means the other team doesn't have it. Even if he doesn't provide any offense, him playing keep-away is valuable.

This.

ESPECIALLY if he's play on the bottom six.

Mitchell's been pretty invisible since the first five games he played in the NHL this season. I really don't care if he's in the lineup or out.

And for the record, he's born and raised in Toronto. It's his first time back since he was traded and I'm sure was energized by that. Hopefully, it will carryover for at least a few games.

He's a spare forward that won't hurt you, and his game fits the team's identity fairly well.

he's a fine spare part but I agree they need to get him out of the lineup by the deadline

Ill take him on my team over Christensen (and Avery -what Avery is now, not the Avery of a few years ago) any day.

That said, once we (hopefully) deal for a top six winger or faceoff/PK center, Mitchell becomes a "black ace". He's a very good 12th/13th forward.

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.

my thoughts exactly, he can posses the puck yea but hes not a vital part of this team and i probably wouldnt know he was in the lineup or not unless i was looking for him.

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
