His career seems to have followed a similar path in Buffalo and Vancouver, seems okay for 2 seasons with a terrible third year. The games I've seen he'll put in one eye-catching shift and then nothing. 4 goals in 41 playoff games.
It's weird how unnoticeable Pyatt is. According to Yahoo, he's fourth on the team in hits behind Hanzal, Doan, and OEL. It's not like he's unwilling to play the body. And I remember Tippett praising his work along the boards. But even knowing all that, he never looks like he's doing anything.
