He's neither a good puckhandler or passer -- so much for playmaker.

Exactly why are we supposed to be excited about this young fellow?

In the immortal words of Sergeant Schultz: "I see nothing!"
Jeff is actually a superb skater, one of the best on this team. He has very good moves, which he has shown flashes of this season (see his SH goal against Washington this year). He will throw his body around, but he's never going to be an intimidating overwhelming physical player. There are plenty of reasons that Jeff was a top 10 prospect before this year, his skill level is extremely high.
