Neckar would only be good enough to knock out Allison.
Barely a jack of all trades and a master of none.
As was mentioned, he doesn't make a lot of mistakes, but his lack of talent and size show up frequently.
His biggest asset is he tries really, really hard. Seriously, he works his tail off, but he's on the smallish side so he gets overpowered on the walls, can't take a guy out of the play, hits don't do any damage, and he is unable to move a guy in front. He can, however, get in the way and positionally he's not that bad at all. Little to no offense to speak of, though he did set up the Game 5 winning goal for Tampa last year late in the 3rd when he pinched in from the blueline, took a cross-ice pass, hesitated and put a strong pass right on Marty St. Louis' tape for the winner. That could be his defining moment in Tampa. He scored a shorty last year from the LW faceoff circle that was a seeing-eye puck, also.
So, in review, Stan tries hard, is just kind of "there," and gets in the way.
