|Is an outstanding offensive talent, plus he owns a tremendous frame for the center position. Knows how to use his size to his advantage and is great at protecting and maintaining possession of the puck. His shot is also lethal. Must prove he can physically dominate opponents at the highest level. Also needs to be able to handle tight checking throughout his NHL career. While he has plenty of defensive ability, consistency still eludes him.|
