Vision, hockey IQ, defensive play, leadership, passing.

He will always be a better passer than goal scorer. He will never be a fast player.

I have never stated he will be a superstar. I have never even stated he will be a 1st line. But being a 50 point player in your 2nd year in the league while getting a ton of PK and PP time means quite a bit.
