I have no issue with a big man who largely doesn't play a physical game if he's using his body similar to a Thornton like game.
Neither, he doesn't play a physical game whatsoever. His puck possession game is fine, but I wouldn't exactly say he's a shield like Thornton. He needs to add weight. But as of right now, he plays small.
