Scouting Report

Assets:
Was an all-time great in terms of natural instincts, overall talent and flair. His wrist shot was lethal and he was a constant menace on the power play. Added more of a leadership role in the latter stages of his career.
Flaws:
Never played with a lot of consistency, so his massive talent rarely got maximized. Also, he slowed down quite a bit in the skating department after knee issues plagued him. Could disappear all too often for spurts.
Career Potential:
Supremely talented and spectacular, yet inconsistent winger.
