"There was a lack of knowledge on how to play a team game," said Gordie Clark, the Rangers' vice president of player personnel. "He was so fast and so strong, he was able to go and do things on his own. There was a lot of projection that had to get done, and one thing that had to get done was, how does he learn to play a team game where you have a job to do?"
