Most of the time we hear about his playmaking and his ability to quarterback a power play,
and every so often we hear that Brad needs be paired with a defenseman who can shoot the puck on the PP even though he is capable of shooting the puck himself.
So far as his shot being too hard to be accurate... I don't know, I remember the vast majority of his PP goals scored in Tampa were due to a slapshot from the point. It's probably not the most accurate shot in the league but it's certainly not Paul Mara territory.
Yeah, but he was on TB for 7 years. He has played against us many times back then. Unless your too young to remember, he was mighty impressive when he played against us.
Wait, you remember when he was on Tampa, so why,... 'we so often hear...'
