Tap your ice on the stick and yell your position (IE "Out front, out front"), and then if he screws it up by shooting wide or gets checked, then you've got a good starting point for what Ozz is talking about. Tell him "yeah, I was at X" like he said, and then maybe ask him "where do you want me on the rush? I'm getting open but you're not using me!"
I had a similar guy on my team a year ago who was more talented than I, but not enough to go through everybody as he tried every time. It really helped when I got his thoughts on the rush. It probably helped that I let him know I wanted the puck too, making him realize it wasn't just him. Together we were able to piece together what a good attack looked like. I'd go where he wanted and he'd give me the puck more. Worked out pretty well.
