He looks so uncomfortable with the puck, and his positioning is wildly inconsistent without it. He is a line chemistry killer right now - he did the same thing with Kopitar and O'Sullivan last year.

He needs to stop thinking so much, rely on his speed and physicality, and let the game come to him.
He's fine when he just gets to the front of the net, but for the life of me I don't know what he thinks he will accomplish by wristing the puck on goal from the blueline.
