His lack of fitness in this early season is a disgrace. He had no offseason surgeries this year for the first time in quite some time and had ample time to get in shape and workout. Many players who have dedicated themselves this offseason have hit the ground running, whereas mike is struggling on shifts that last longer than 30 seconds.
He got to where he is by his exceptional hockey IQ and compete level. His skills for a top line forward are pretty average. He is NOT in any shape or form very talented if you're talking about technical or physical skills. Decent? Yes. Very talented? No.
