Didn't shy away from board play or going to the net, but it wasn't exactly his game to grind it out. Was better defensively as a center than a left wing, and his defensive game really only evolved later in his career. Could be used in any situation later in his career (PP and PK) and would sometimes play his off-wing on the power play. Shifty player, with very good hands and a very good wrist shot - however, by trade he was more of a playmaker than goal-scorer.

Despite my better judgment, I do like to give rough comparisons when I make scouting reports. Surely, someone will jump down my throat for it, but how about Brad Richards...

Random name, uh, Bernie Nicholls...why not?
