He also has a wicked shot and is very physical. The only thing he is lacking in is hockey sense. He's not always making smart plays, but that can be taught. He has every tool that a hockey player could dream of having
Just like Gilbert Brule. He, of course, did nothing in the NHL but was traded for Raffi Torres (who represents about the best that a player with tools and no hockey IQ can hope to achieve).
