OTTAWA - It probably caught a few people off guard when coach Paul MacLean singled out his third line centre -- ahead of all the Senators star players -- when he was recently handing out bouquets.

But upon closer reflection, it should have come as no surprise at all.

MacLean routinely speaks of how consistency is the hardest thing to achieve in hockey; of how consistency is the goal not just that the players and team are striving for, but also himself and his staff.
