Someone said they were disappointing by his physical play (may have been you, not sure). I agree with that. If the guy could actually come around to play like a true powerforward he could be a hell of one.

But honestly, we will have a better idea of what we have in him when Feb/March roles around.
I think it's too early to be dissapointed in Zib's physical play: he was fairly physical in the SEL and this is his first year in NA; he might take a while to adjust to the physicality of NA.
Could he be more physical in his approach? Sure, why not. Does not mean he won't get the hang of NA hockey and develop the mean streak we think he could have.
Bottom line is he was considered physical in the SEL so that's a positive.
