|Has a goal-scorer's mentality, creative instincts, solid offensive acumen, good hands and a great shot. Is big enough to handle himself against bigger NHL defensemen and does an effective job in the slot. Can play either wing position too, which adds value.|
|Has had to endure serious injuries throughout his career. Tends to disappear for stretches, especially from the score sheet. Isn't a great skater, which limits his overall effectiveness. His battle level is not always on high, which leads to his scoring slumps.|
|Quality veteran but fragile winger, when healthy.|
