Understood. It could work maybe with the backdoor'ing, but that's a high risk play, I cringe every time Markov does it because we end up getting caught on an odd man rush sometimes. It takes a highly intelligent player to perform those and I am not sure I trust a 2nd year forward to do them. His shot is best released in the slot area, the point is more a slap-shot thing, unless your wrister is of Subban or Markov quality.
