I haven't seen him play this year of course but last season I came to the conclusion that to be successful, he needs to play outside his comfort zone and aggressively adopt a different style. He's not going to be successful playing like he's the 2nd coming of Peter McNab.

I think it's within his reach to play a more driving style (even with his skating handicaps) but I have my doubts that he wants to.

Which is one of the reasons he looks like he's standing around watching things happen or reacting way too late to the action.

His best attributes are his size and his shot but he's not used the former to any advantage and confidence in his shot (before he was sent down) was nil.

Yet, he was a young gun in last year's All Star game.
