Skating, passing, scoring, leadership, playoff resume, defensive play, clutch play, elevating his teammates' play
Very much like a perfect hockey player.
Yeah, I also view him as basically the prototype for top line center.
Like, I'm sure if you asked a GM to give a vague description of what they want their first line center to be (other than cheeky responses like "Wayne Gretzky"), most would want him to be a big, rangy, intelligent two-way guy who could skate, pass and shoot.
