Thats a solid run down. His smarts really stand out and he has good passing skills. People give him a soft label but he's not soft at all. IMO the best way to put it is that he's not agressive. He'll block shots, doesn't get manhandles along the boards and ties up players well.

Player comparison upside: Kenny Jonsson
