A "Rover" for all intensive purposes but with a very keen understanding of the defensive game, angles, using them defensively in order to make the offence pay the price while coughing up the puck for a quick turnover & transition. As for his size, he was wiry, and Im not so sure that 190's near accurate. Im thinking mebbe 160'ish. No pushover, but certainly not a big man, and certainly not by todays standards.
