Scouting Report
Assets:
Was an awesome one-on-one defender, had a great reach and could dish out punishing body checks. He was also an excellent power-play point man, due to a big shot and great hockey sense. Was born to lead. Could log huge amounts of ice time, when healthy.
Flaws:
A serious concussion ended his career prematurely, and he became injury-prone and aged over time. Had a tendency to take bad penalties and make questionable hits from time to time. Wasn't a natural when rushing up the ice with the puck due to his size.
Career Potential:
All-time great defenseman.
