|Was an excellent goal-scoring source when on top of his game, thanks largely to his huge frame and puck-controlling ability. Also skated very well for his size. Over time he became an excellent two-way winger. Could go into prolonged scoring droughts, which became steeper and more frequent with time. Did not use his size in a physical capacity enough. Age and injuries sapped some of his game-breaking scoring prowess (concussion-like symptoms effectively ended his playing career).|
