Awesome? He's average. Best case ever, he's somewhat above average, as he is a quality skater.
I'm sorry AB, but this is just flat wrong. Awesome is a bit of an overstatment, but he's among the best two way wingers in the league. His anticipation, reading of the play, positioning, stick work, and willingness to backcheck hard, are easily in the upper echelon of scoring wingers.
