If you want to get into specifics, he doesnt have the puck handeling or passing ability to consistantly play the type of game he tries to play in the offensive zone. This makes him largely ineffective as he's prone to costly turnovers. We've seen it countless times...he secures the puck down low, fights hard behind the net, makes a good move or two, but ultimately turns the puck over before they can finish the job.

This isn't to say he can never be effective but, over a large enouch sample size, his lack of abilities catch up to him.

If he makes this team, he should be a 4th liner who gets plugged into anyline that needs a spark. He's good for one or two explosive games at a time, but your just not going to get consistant success over the long term
Agree with your analysis.
