Scouting Report
Assets: Is as highly skilled as anyone in the NHL when on his game. Has the ability to keep the puck on a string and sift through defenders. Is a monster talent that can play any forward position. Elevates his game when it matters most. Racks up points at will.
Flaws: Can struggle on face-offs. Is not as dominant when he plays either wing position, since he is denied the puck more often along the wall. Takes bad penalties and is a little careless with the puck in all three zones. Is not as effective in a more defensive system.
Career Potential: Elite veteran playmaker.
