And all that heart. Great player.

More often than not, he does the same move on any breakaway: The kick fake, double deke and wrapping it around the goalie's outstretched pad. That's not a criticism, mind you, as this move seems to work very well for him.

I don't know how much better his judgement is (I think it's been pretty stellar ever since he came back from Hartford during his first full season), but he has gotten more confident with the puck. He shows flashes of skill more and more, while rarely sacrificing his elite game away from the puck.
