For a big guy I kind of expected him to be more of a front of the net player. (I didn't see him play w/ Columbus...just highlights.) I've been surprised by how smooth his hands are with the puck. He seems like he's a little tentative to drive to the net when he gets the chance, so far. I know he said it's nice not to have all the pressure on his back to produce, and he's happy to have guys to share the offensive responsibility, but I think he needs to be more assertive and just drive to the net. This isn't being selfish, it's him being productive for team. No need to overthink his game. I can't wait to see him when he's really playing on top of his game.
