Too be fair MPS has historically looked better offencively on the right side, especially on the rush. However the difference is now he's found a role on what to do once the team's set up in the offencive zone: drive the front of the net or low slot, and get to loose pucks.

It's nice to see him come out of his sophomore slump and regain his game a bit. He won't be Hossa, but if he can keep playing like this, maybe Erik Cole would be a decent comparable for him.

Cole? I'd even be happy with a Mike Grier or Radek Dvorak career at this point.

I hope this was a joke response, or that English is your fifth language.

I've always hoped (perhaps over-optimistically) for him to round into a Jere Lehtinen type for us. Top-6 defensive stalwart who can be the security blanket on a line with stars, but still hold his weight offensively. Not physical, but not a pushover either, fast as hell and good for 40-50 points.

I've expected more of a Dvorak career, which is the same player type but a little bit worse across the board.

I'd be very happy with either. Those are the quality secondary types that help good teams to turn themselves into contenders.
