Scouting Report
Assets: Has great strength and a lethal shot. Can overpower defenders physically or use finesse. Possesses the soft hands of a natural goal-scorer, but will also drop the gloves when necessary. He is one of the great power forwards of all time in the NHL.
Flaws: Has been known to start off slowly out of the gate during the regular season, and his scoring streaks have become increasingly problematic as he has gotten older. Has also lost a step in terms of his skating stride. Is not as tough as he used to be.
Career Potential: Future Hall-of-Famer, natural scorer, power forward and leader.
