I think he's really grown his game in the playoffs. The two things I really like:
1. He settles the puck in his own zone, and doesn't rush to get rid of it. He looks like Streit at time, faking left, then holding onto the puck and finding an open guy. Everyone on here seems to want him to just bang the puck up the boards as soon as he touches it (like Grossmann does), but I like it when he waits that extra half-second..We need all the possession time we can get, and just throwing it back up the ice isn't worth it.
2. Poke checks. He doesn't have the best reach, but he's gotten noticeably better at poke checking and applying pressure along the boards.
