On the positive side .. his skating seems to no longer be an issue .. sure he's awkward looking with that hunched over stride and galloping first few steps .. but he gets were he needs to be without issue.
He's a gritty and combatitive player .. good away from the puck, and is willing to pay the price to score .. quick shot as well.
But! He will likely ultimately never amount to a top six winger because he lacks poise with the puck, and seems to brain cramp with the puck. I question his anticipation and hockey sense. Not a savvy player by any means and some times the game moves too fast for him.
Thanks Sharkie. Sounds a lot like Chimmer from where I'm sitting without the physical game. Maybe we put them both on the same line and we have something.
