His biggest OFFENSIVE hole seems to be his ability to play along the boards and cycle the puck. Under Bruce, they played so much fast break style, which really fits his game...the problem is that playoff hockey eliminates most fast break opportunities....

Whether he likes it or not, OV needs to develop the ability to play along the boards and retain the puck within a cycle game, even if the new coach doesn't stress it. His positioning always seems to be off when playing on the boards, and he doesn't seem to be able to use his size to hang on to the puck...
