I think the biggest issue I have with his game is the lack of intensity. Unfortunately that's not something you can fix with coaching either. He's a really steady player but when the game counts come playoff time the guys that are often times the difference makers on winning teams are the guys that can raise their intensity level.
The bolded thing is the part that bothers me the most about his game. I have no real issue with his offensive game (decent enough 3rd line offense) or his defensive game (positional game), but I don't like just how ... non-aggressive he is. He lacks bite.

If he played with the typical Sutter snarl, I wouldn't complain about the rest of his game at all.
