For the rest of them he was causing turnovers, one-timing it off feeds from #9 (who he seemed to have great chemistry with), cutting through the high slot Koivu-style. He looks EXACTLY like Selanne when comes down the right wing near the boards and scores into the far side corner. He shows plenty of scorer's instincts.
I counted well over 30 goals scored at a high speed off the rush, not necessarily breakaways but dangling through defensemen and using his superior speed and build to power through/past guys. Which will translate to an extent to the NHL because he's got a great shot but he doesn't have Selanne or Perry type instincts where he will manage to get open in the high scoring areas without defensemen noticing him.
