YES. And for that matter, I think Slozo's comments totally nailed it with him!
I originally expected a little more offense, but he's settled into a really good two way role, with some physicality, some tenacity and some downright annoyance as he pesters other teams top players in a shut down role! Easy guy for other teams and their fans to hate!
I think he is doing pretty good. Seems like he is twice the player when he gets a more skilled forward on his wing. Seen nylander play a couple of shifts with him and kadri looked very comfortable and stuck out moreso. Another player ( nylander ) who can skate with him and prob read the play as he does.
