|Has excellent size and strength. Complements star forwards well. Can line up on either side of center and can be an asset parked in front of the opposing goal. Adds veteran savvy and some leadership ability.|
|Is not always physical enough for his size. His work in the defensive zone (and play in general) lacks consistency. Stops moving his feet at times, which hurts his game considerably. In in decline on offense.|
