Honestly, I don't care about his hands as much as I care about his shot and his awareness. If he can keep up with Sid or Geno on a quick break, and then have enough awareness and feel in the offensive zone (a la James Neal) where he can find those spots in coverage and just rip shots...that guy is going to fit in beautifully here.
The Rags were protecting a 1-0 lead, so it was mostly dump and chase hockey on their end.

He made a beautiful read on the PK and jumped into a 2-1, but the goalie made an unreal save.

I will let you know about his hands and shot after a few more games, but as far as keeping up with Sid speed wise, he is faster, honestly. He's a ****ing rocket.
