Also owns one of the most devastating arsenal of shots in his beer league
and sees the ice very well. Is known and feared league wide for his ability score in the clutch. Is easily one of the 3 strongest players in his league and is not afraid to stand up for his teammates, although he usually shies away from dirty play.
Weaknesses: The ice is clearly slanted towards the offensive zone for him and his puckhandling, while above average for a beer league in Houston, still needs some work. Tends to make one too many moves instead of shooting or passing. Has a tendancy to be too patient with the puck resulting missed scoring chances. Can be too unselfish at times, often looking for a pass when shooting is the best option. Could stand to be more physical and add some nastiness to his game, although he has been developing these "skills." Could stand to keep his frustration in check when things don't go his way, as it further disrupts his game.
Comparison: A much crappier Phil Esposito, with better wheels (compared to the competition).
What the hell, it sounds like a newspaper article.
