Pens first round choice back in 1999. He has blazing speed, which is his best asset. If his hands catch up to his feet, he can be amazing (Pavel Bure). BUT, he hasn't shown very good hands at all, or at any level so far. It has been said that he can give you everything but goals.

However, in the offseason he has supposedly worked on his offensive play. All throughout training camp and the preseason he has been making smarter decisions with the puck, and his shot has improved from last year. In short, he looks like a much different player.

Hasn't proven much, but he could really break out this year if he has really improved on his decision making. Due to his speed, which also allows him to get back and cover defensively, I am almost certain he will play on Mario's line to start the season. From there, we will see what happens.

Here is another link about him: http://www.post-gazette.com/penguins...ens0914np3.asp
