I saw him play a few games in person, back then it was really hard to say that he was overrated. He looked so crafty with the a puck for a big guy. His passing and vision were really good too (typical style for good Russian forwards).

The only logical thing I can think of is that the coaches discouraged him from being creative as much and asked him to play more physical, 'to use his size'. Which would be dumb considering his strengths when he played jr.
