Great speed,great offensive player. Can put the puck in the net and create chances. Gets in the dirty areas and doesn't back down from anyone. Defensively not great. Does give away the puck more than he should but still a young player. I can see him getting 60-70 pts. in a season at his peak. Great guy off the ice as well. Very friendly and personable. Met him and his family. Very nice people.
Only saw the first bit of the game, but from what I did I like CC a lot!! Was exactly as advertised. Hoping that line can keep it up - especially when Spezza/Michalek are back. The 'Quick-Silfver Trio' are going to absolutely destroy lower lines.
Eh...that's easily the weakest part of his game. He seems to spend half his time out there on the ice laying down. He's not strong on his skates at all...
That said he played really well and I liked having him on the team. He should get better as he becomes more accustomed to the team and could have easily had a point or two last night.
Definitely not the weakest part of his game. He is effective because he is such a strong skater. He gets knocked down a lot because of how hard he crashes the net (the reason both goals went in against Buffalo was from his screen)
