A real coaches player I guess I mean, willing to do whatever is needed and loving being able to do it with his imposing frame.

He just seems like an "aw, shucks" type kid or something, I find it refreshing in this generation of really smart and calculated kids like Fucale or Gallagher, even though I love that trend too and their interviews are always great. Just some random musings, maybe had a few too many hah.
I agree. It seems he has a good perspective on things. He's shown commitment to improvement, he obviously wants to make the NHL, and he seems to have a true love for the game. That being said, I think you may have hit the nail on the head, he does seem old-school. Keeps it simple and knows what a great stroke of luck he has had to be blessed with a body like his. It seems he simply knows he needs to be mean, nasty, etc and that makes it easy for him to know what to do. Definitely a hockey guy.
