Personally, I think he has skill, poise, toughness, vision and a good shot but he never shoots, can't use his skill well aside from defense because he has no chemistry with linemates, has to look deep inside for the gritty game or the hustle to make things happen.

I don't worry about Bailey succeeding. He has all the tools and has put them together and, UNLIKE OKPOSO, plays sound hockey when he's slumping.

I worry about the Isles never getting the talent voids filled, instead replacing one drek with another, even if said drek flourishes {PAP replaced by Boyes}.

I wish we had last year's first line and Bailey flanking Boyes and Grabner.
