|Has exceptional vision and creativity on the ice. His offensive instincts are off the charts. Owns great patience with the puck, as well as soft hands. Plays with attitude and doesn't mind getting under opponents' skin.|
|Has never been great in the defensive zone. Lacks bulk and is undersized by NHL standards. Is not much of a goal-scorer; he prefers to pass instead of to shoot too often. Can be lazy at times. Is advancing in age.|
|Veteran playmaker in decline.|
