Hes been a soft perimeter type player since his shoulder injury. Im not saying thats a bad thing. Not everyone has to be a banger on the roster. But dont go saying hes not a soft player just because hes Ranger property now.
That's the thing, though - based solely on his 4 games here I would NOT call him a perimeter player. He has been more than willing to go into the dirty areas. He just isn't that effective when he engages there. That's why I drew the distinction between unwilling (which is how I view soft) to hit, battle along the walls, etc. and willing, but not possessing much aptitude at it.
