Scouting Report
Assets: Can still be an excellent goal-scoring source when on top of his game, thanks largely to his huge frame and puck-controlling ability. Also skates very well for his size. Has become an excellent two-way winger over time.
Flaws: Can go into prolonged scoring droughts, which have become steeper and more frequent with time. Does not use his size for physicality much. Age and injuries have sapped some of his game-breaking scoring prowess.
Career Potential: Quality, veteran two-way winger.
