|Was a savvy goaltender and clutch performer. Could play an electrifying, acrobatic style that left fans on the edge of their seat. Had the ability to win games by himself at the NHL level.|
|His unpredictable style made him vulnerable against teams that went to the net consistently. Could experience difficulty with rebounds. Struggled when he over-handled the puck.|
