He still does have elite hands and dangling skills, but that doesn't translate well to the NHL level. His hands are ridiculous and he moves the puck very well.

I don't think he'll ever be the elite offensive forward, Daniel Alfredsson-type we thought he would be. He may be the type that just needs a little more time to adjust to the N.A game though

Just trolling the Sens fans
