He needs to draw guys to him, then kick it out to an open man....instead he floats through with his dangles, loses it, and watches our guys play defense...I don't want this guy if he will be playing like this.
Yeah, I'm as disappointed in that as you are. He can't just lug the puck as a single player, he has to use his teammates. If he carries speed with the unit coming up ice he could get some space, but taking it on his own up the middle, just chews time off the clock and then they have to head back.
