|Was a towering presence on the wing, and knew how to lay on the body to intimidate the opposition. Could also provide pugilistic support and play an enforcer role. Was also a great leader and terrific teammate. Became somewhat of a celebrity late in his playing career and was wildly popular.|
|Had trouble keeping up with the speed of the NHL. Did not have much of an offensive arsenal and struggled to fend off fleet-footed opponents. Could take bad penalties from time to time that could hurt his team. Started his career on defense but could not handle the position at the NHL level.|
|Heavyweight enforcer and quality teammate.|
