Hopefully he can continue to develop the O skills.
That I can agree with, he needs to be more dominant. The X factor here is if he's hurt or not, and if he was for most of the season. IMO that's why he needs to gain significant mass to be better able to resist the hits he will receive due to his play style. He forechecks and plays in traffic like if he thought he was a big guy, always leads to injuries. Can't wait to see the shape he'll be at training camp, if he has enough time to train with his shoulder surgery...
