He has a bad habit of holding on to the puck way too long and then it is simply taken from him which kills any offensive momentum.

The kid has tons of skill and he's speed is good but not elite. Not nearly explosive enough to beat NHL D-men. He won't ever be a top tier point scorer until he starts using his size and plays a bit more like a power forward. Think Todd Bertuzzi early in his career. He needs to lower his shoulder, be hard on the puck and drive to the net sometimes. Just get the puck to the net. He's way to big to be constantly circling back, trying to beat guys purely on skill which he does way to much.
