Scouting Report
Had incredible imagination with the puck and excellent playmaking ability. Had good anticipation and functioned expertly during pressure situations. Liked to shoot the puck often when playing the point on the power play. Was a leader by example.
Was not big or physical, so he could wear down against bigger opponents. Also, he was a bit too soft at times. His defensive game regressed a little bit over time. Was never a particularly swift skater or very vocal leader, even in his prime.
Career Potential:
Outstanding, savvy and creative scoring forward.
