Noesen actually has great hands and a pretty good head to play with skilled players unlike Foligno.
Despite his Cy Young totals this year, he is generally considered a better playmaker than scorer. His offensive abilities are really, quite rounded. Even his coach noted in an interview earlier this year, that he is still setting up just as many opportunities for his linemates, but they just haven't been burying them this year. Yet.
Sucks that he will miss the WJC, but really won't hamper his development in a major way.
I really am pretty surprised that hit caused a 10-gamer though. Not a hit to the head OR from behind. He left his feet and deserved a penalty, but otherwise, a pretty fair hit.
