Izzy needs to fake drive to the outside, stall, cut inside and when the defensemen opens his legs to adjust shoot through the D-man's legs, for the low screen shot. He just might score but he should follows his shot to the net anyway causing havoc maybe pick up his own rebound and shoot again. If he hasn't scored yet he proceeds onto the blue paint, probably now with two defensemen dragging off of him. Now someone else is open. This is how to draw penalties and antagonize goaltenders. Only when Brad does this and other similar plays like driving out from behind the net and executing the stuff-in can he be considered a power forward.
The rest of his game has been pretty good. He does intimidate with his hitting and he skates well without too many defensive lapses. Izzy is still 2nd line material when fully healthy.
