1. He spent his early career as a large shut down center before finding his scoring touch. Can still play center if needed on a 3rd line.
2. He scores dirty goals. Rebound, Deflections, Garbage fairly consistently.
3. He has a strong wrister with a quick release off the rush.
4. He has size though does not always use it. (50/50).
5. Gets a reputation as a floater cause he makes it look easy but steps up in the playoffs, always.
6. He is not slow.
7. He is not bad defensively.
8. He is consistently around 30 goals with or without datsyuk
10. He plays wing or center.
11. Adequate faceoff man (though pretty bad last year 45% but was 55% in 2011).

Guy is a top 6 forward on any team in the league just because of his versatility. He is a grinder or a scorer. He was not named the Mule by Stevie Y for nothing.
OK, I guess I didn't word it right. He may not be one-dimensional. but he'd be only valuable for the Caps as a scoring winger, the only thing he really stands out at is scoring.
