He wanted every play to run through him instead of being the guy who finds seams in the ice and picks corners. He's a tenacious player, but he's going to do most of his damage in open ice. Seems like he's getting back to what made him most effective.
Exactly this. I also think the Rangers may have told him to try and work on other parts of his game when he went back. By all accounts his physical play picked up after that. He isn't soft. Love that he is shooting from everywhere.
