Thanks, that helps a bit. Maybe I'll drop Manning then and hang on to Gustafsson.

Great hands and very slippery out there. Is really learning how to use his linemates this year.
Strong on the puck and great in the corner when he uses his but to shield of defenders.
Drives the right lanes looking for passes. If he has a step on the defender, he's not afraid to take the puck to the net and is very effective while doing so.
Very good penalty killer, uses his speed to pressure dmen who have to be wary about making a turnover and being beaten by his speed.

Shot placement. He has a good release but he doesn't always effectively shoot. With his speed he should back defenders in more often and use them as a screen.
Has moment's where he tries to do way too much. He has really improved on this recently.
Had alot of weak moments the last few years defensively although, once again he looks determined to change that this year. Has been great this season.

Very delayed, but...

He dangles the puck like Alexei Kovalev. He makes many slick plays with the puck, but many times it won't result in much. He is often to selfish with how long he holds onto the puck. Lots of east-west movement as he skates the puck forward.

When he does pass and shoot good things happen. His shot is severely underrated, but that is because he doesn't get it off enough. He gets a decent amount of points, but if he simplified his game and used his teammates better, he would put up many more points.

His defensive game has improved over the years, but is above average. His aggressive pursuit has earned him some time on the PK.

The guy is a huge rink rat.

He isn't much of a play maker, but isn't inept either.

His defensive game has greatly improved over the years, to the point where he is becoming a two-way player.

Patrik's demeanor is tough to get a read on unless you pay close attention over a period of time. He is probably harder on himself than anyone else will ever be (own worst critic fits here). He is a serious and passionate competitor. When he is achieving to the level of his own high expectations, his celebrations are more about victory and accomplishment rather than joy or fun.

A very team oriented, yet intellectual player.

Very interesting guy to watch from a deep psychological standpoint.

Nail Yakupov....on the NHL level that is..
Have watched him play at the Junior level many times, but because of work have only caught his highlights in Edmonton.
How has he looked so far on the big stage?
