Scouting Report
Assets: A natural point producer whose setup skills rivaled some of the best the game has ever seen, he was also extremely well rounded and more suited to the physical game than twin brother Daniel. Had strong defensive tendencies and off-the-charts playmaking ability. Was also excellent on face-offs.
Flaws: Did not have a natural goal-scorer's mentality--that was his twin brother Daniel's job. Rarely shot the puck, even when he had limited options at his disposal. Struggled a bit to step his game up when the spotlight shone brightest, and generally had some trouble when games became very physical.
Career Potential: Outstanding, consistent playmaking center.
