He's such a great player....he lost a half step after his first big knee injury....otherwise matched with some half-decent wingers he'd had been easy top-10 scorer year in, year out.

His biggest flaws back then were faceoffs and D. Well guess what, he was a bit slower...so he played smarter - and still got points playing with a whole lotta riff-raff over the years...and he was determined to improve his faceoffs and defense...now he's one of the better players in both those areas. Just watch him without the puck.....he knows how to erase passing lanes and anticipate the play.

Glad to see he's finally playing with star talent again in Tanguay. Hope he retires a Hab - a Hab for life!
