For the record though, his slapshot is not phenomenally accurate. If he's winding up, pray your forwards aren't in his shooting lane. He is one of the very few players whose shot is hard enough to beat an unscreened goalie, though. Top of the faceoff circle? He can blow it right past them.
The bolded part is good enough for me. Somebody who won't give up constant shorthanded rushes? Yay!
