I put his passing in the Afineganov and MAGs category. They short-stick the puck and end up sending knuckle-balls across the ice or, at the very least, passes that throw off the player's timing at the other end. I'm not a fan.
We are in the minority but I'm with you. His play overall, while significantly improved, has wreaked of nonchalance. With his passes, I think that is intentional. He likes the saucers, floaters, bouncers, etc., and doesn't often pass with authority. I cannot sit here and say he has the mechanics of a good passerr Not with What i have seen so far.
I'd have less of a problem of his game didn't suck all year.
