I think he is an excellent forechecker, love his energy, quick skating, and can capitalize on those turnovers with a very good release. Great in pressuring opponents and forcing them to make mistakes.

Problem that I understand some might have on him is that he isn't one to carry a team's offense. I didn't see an ability to create room for himself, which raises questions of his ultimate offensive upside. Because of limited viewing, my stance is not as concrete as it could, but I respect it if someone has those concerns.

But the fact is, even if his offense is in question, he can be a significant impact off the scoresheet and he brings everything you want in a player: quickness, energy, and ability to pressure.
Care to elaborate on the bolded?

Seems like a lot of vague mumbo jumbo.

Btw he is currently tied for second in goals on the Oil Kings, a team with a lot of pretty good offensive players, all of whom are older than Lazar.
