He telegraphs the fact that he's going to pass all the time and because he's moving so slowly with the puck he's easy to contain.

He's a great player but not using all of his tools to his advantage yet.
I mentioned the same thing in another thread... I loved the way he closed out last season... watching him was something incredibly special.

This season, he seems to be relying more on his vision than his skills... it would be sick to see him use both.

Then again he is young, and he is getting results... I think we can allow him a little time to grow
