That describes him perfectly.
He always reminded me of a THN article I read about the Oilers still favouring speed after the dynasty broke up.
It said: It is one thing to get to the net in a hurry, it is another thing to do something when you get there.
That is what really separates some guys mentioned in this thread from the rest.. their ability to actually do things while at the same time skating better than everyone else.
