The kid has some heart,
and if he throws the body around a bit, he could really be a grinding force that other teams will absolutely hate to play against.
He is definitely an emotional player. You can see how mad he gets when he can't finish and how excited he does when he or someone else does. I definitely believe he cares and works his butt off every shift.
I can see the Ryan Callahan comparison to a degree but I'm not sure he has that natural grittiness, win at all costs mentality, which separates a player like Callahan from most. I also think Callahan is more of a finisher than Shore. But a decent comparison nonetheless.
