Maybe a little strong, you rarely see him making mistakes on the defensive side of the puck.  If you've noticed that he is good on the PP, it's only because he's one of the better passers on the roster.  He's very accurate, and was featured in a In Lou We Trust article for it. 

 

I see no issues with his defensive game. If it wasn't for his defensive game, he'd probably be out of an NHL job by now. My argument is that he has shown nothing more than being a checking center.

 

Also, I meant "PK" not "PP" (and edited the error in my post).

except that isn't true. he played half of two games on Jagr's line last year, and that was it. far from atrocious, too.

 

Maybe "atrocious" was a bit strong. I hope I'm wrong, but I haven't seen anything from JJ to indicate that he's anything more than a checking center. He's great on the PK but I just don't see him as being anything more.

Please keep in mind how many of those games were played on the same line as Cam, Boulton or Gionta

 

You missed my next sentence:

At this point, it's hard to argue he still needs experience or an opportunity to succeed (DeBoer has rotated him on the 1st/2nd lines and was atrocious).
