|Knew how to handle the physical game and was a natural leader. Highly determined, he would go through a wall and pay the price to score goals. He also had sound defensive qualities. Played through a myriad of injuries and was great in traffic.|
|Was not a natural finisher, and would occasionally miss easy scoring chances. Was prone to taking bad penalties that cost his team sometimes. His fierce physical style led to injuries. His offensive production declined steadily at the end of his career.|
|Outstanding power forward, complementary winger and leader.|
