very, very much the same type of player....

good comparison...

If a team , as you said , does nothing but trap and take away his chance to get a head of steam..the trapping team will be effective against him.
( The Nylander -Samsanov duo is a different story )

But back to Joe.. Those teams that have decided to slash him, facewash him or out muscle him.. will usually be taken to school . Both on the score board and with a black eye..

Yeah... not unlike The Big M..
