|Was a big presence up the middle and could be a decent face-off man, though he could also play wing. When motivated, he played a complete game and his leadership skills were on full display.|
|He underachieved as a point producer in the National Hockey League, for the most part. Also, his overall game lacked consistency for years. Was a bit too streaky on offense.|
|Inconsistent, talented and versatile center.|
