Sorry but I think your analysis is wrong.

He's not a banger, we all agree there.

But from the majority of games I've watched + the intense youtube after he was traded, he's always near the net fishing for rebounds, making passes from behind the net, boxing out players in front of the net, getting deflections etc.

And since he's a big body he is very hard to knock off the puck, he's not a guy that crashes the net, he boxes the net.
