He's a total team guy, good defensively, good along the boards and has a nice wrist shot. He's one of those players that the puck seems to follow around - he gets himself into scoring spots and isn't easy to push off the puck. All kinds of hockey smarts too.
He may not wear the C next year, but I'd be shocked if he doesn't wear it the year after. He led the team in scoring this year as a rookie, was co-rookie of the year with MacInnis (but in my mind, he was far better than MacInnis all year), and was Kitchener's scholastic player of the year, and from all reports, just a great kid with great attitude.
Cool to see you post. It's been a long time.
How did Max look this year? I'm headlining a charity show for the Big E foundation this fall, and I'm hoping he comes.
