They need a guy that can get open and shoot. They also need someone with enough hockey IQ to understand their next move. It's one thing to sit back and watch Datsyuk do his thing, but you need to be able to understand what he's trying to do and adjust accordingly to receive a pass, one timer, tip-in, etc. Abdelkader is a few too many steps behind those two. He can go to the net with his stick on the ice, but that's about it.
