If you read the scouting reports on him, he's a DT guy. Since DT loves guys with a combo of speed, skill and grit.
Plus, the hockey sense is a bonus. His 5'11''/ 6'0'' frame is decent and the girth will come later on to fill that out. His ability to stickhandle at top speed and finishing quality is what attracts me the most.
I swear in the last 2 years Ive heard every combination of player type as a "Tallon Guy". Big and skilled, Skilled and disclipined, Smart and Big, etc, etc... Hes brought in numerous players that dont fit being "Tallon Guys" - Wojtek Wolski, Kuba, Kovalev, just to name a few. Yes, Tallon loves Big, Skilled, gritty, fast guys; BUT SO DOES EVERY GM IN THE LEAGUE. This theory that he will choose this guy or that guy because he is "tallon's type of guy" is a total misnomer. "Tallon's type of Guy" is anyone he thinks can help the team win.
