Combine that with above-average quickness, incredible athleticism and co-ordination (especially puck control) and almost complete fearlessless and you get a guy who moves on the ice as well as anyone. But at the same time, he's not Paul Coffey out there.
I agree with your assessment of his physical attributes. Before we accord him greatness we have to look at his decision making. He's not quite there yet.
