He's like a freight train.. Problem is by the time he builds up his speed the play is already finished and he has to turn around, another thing Freight Trains don't do very well.

I find him to be slow, soft, and contrary to what many believe I don't believe he has a very good shot. Supposevly he has great hands, I keep hearing it on these forums but yet I have yet to see it in an NHL game.

I don't feel he brings anything to this team that Pacioretty, D'Agostini or several other of our prospects could bring to the table at this stage in the game. I really hope he proves me wrong this year, I'd love nothing more then to be proven wrong.
