His strength and size were his selling points when drafted. Not necessarily his wizardry with the puck. We're not seeing any of the former, and way too much of the latter. He can have a teammate wide open entering the zone, but he'd rather try to go around\through the defender. The toe drags and head-fakes may have worked in the NCAA, but it won't work against an NHL defender. He's not being creative, he's stifling the entire line.
