What's this "small habs style forward" nonsense too?

He doesn't play like a small player.

Do you watch hockey?
Mind your manners. It was a compliment

Don't know if it has been posted yet, but here's Lehner's take on the trade/becoming a full-time NHL player:

"Now [becoming an NHL player is] because of something I’ve worked on and the organization felt that I deserved. I really appreciate that. This organization took me in a few years ago when no one really knew about me. I’ve had some ups and downs and they really moulded me into a good prospect. Then they kept going and turned me into a professional. A lot of credit goes to them. I’m young, I’m 21 years old and it has always been my age against me. I really pushed the envelope and probably haven’t made it easy for the management up here. That’s fine, that’s who I am. They’ve taught me how to step back and relax a little bit."

I know what you mean but I do believe one can harness their intellectual understanding of the game a bit more. Obviously there is a limit but yea, look at Zibby for instance or players that peak at different stages.

Vision can not be taught, IQ can be improved a bit. Hoffman has great vision but just needs to improve on knowing where to be etc...
