It's a force because you create chances with rebounds and you are bound to get some lucky goals, but it often breaks the option of a better play. Mind you, I do not care if that's the player he'll be, but if he wants to be on Gionta's level he has to work on his shot. You need an elite shot to be that kind of player.
I think he's going to need to shoot like crazy to make it in the NHL. He has better hands than Gionta but much less speed, so he might have to be a little bit more varied but I can see him trying to fill a similar role.
