4. He can finish a play.
Now for the not-so-positive.
5. He plays soft. He avoids contact and gives up on plays along the boards.
6. Yes, he can finish a play but is easily knocked around and moved from in front of the net.
7. He tends not to put out much effort in the defensive zone and often doesn't even make an appearance in the defensive zone but lays back hoping for the rare cherry-picking opportunity.
If only he had Westrum's gritty determination, he would have never even made a pit stop in the AHL.
Sounds like Bouchard with finishing skills.
