I'm not claiming that his hockey IQ is off the charts, but I really think his failures have more to do with the fact that he was about as bad at controling the puck as he was good at skating.
I agree. He definitely is far from a smart hockey player, but even if he had a hockey brain I still don't think he would be that good. He's essentially Rico Fata 2.0. Some good individual abilities but overall not that good of a hockey player.
