He tries hard in the NHL to stay in space and create something, but that's not possible so he coughs up the puck.
I am still hopeful for his future if he gets stronger. I think we have seen the other areas of his game.
I agree, he's going to have to get stronger, but that's actually one thing that is easily remedied...
