Meh he's alright as an injury fill in.  When Boeser gets back he will either be on the 4th line or in the press box.  

 

If I was him I'd be worried about job security.  When your employer misspells your name on the back of your jersey it probably means your days are numbered...

Lol

I think he's been pretty decent so far, certainly not suited for a top-6 role but really should be deployed more in one of our bottom-6 lines going forward to add a bit more offence. He is very versatile, we haven't had a player like Chiasson for a while who can do everything.

 

I'd be interested to see what he could do alongside Motte who also plays a strong defensive game but has the ability to score big playoff goals as well, maybe with Sutter or Dickinson as center who both have some secret offensive skills hidden away. They'd be a nice defensive-minded trio who can hem opponents top lines in their own zones quite nicely.

He’s not really that good defensively though for the checking role.  He’s had several missed assignments and seemed to be always out there when the Canucks were pinned in our own zone.  I feel like he’s a healthy scratch when Motte comes back.

Issue isn't how good he is but you have to take away the coach's toys.  Green overuses him.
