|Has a wealth of playmaking talent. Uses his size and reach very well in the offensive zone. Can also shoot the puck with precision. His defensive game has improved, but it is still lacking for the NHL. Can play both center and wing. His skating ability, play without the puck and physical toughness are all average, at best. Can be guilty of over-handling the puck at times. Turns the puck over a lot. His production is in sharp decline.|
|Long Range Potential:|
|Veteran playmaker in decline.|
