      He is a little bit like E.F. Hutton. He doesn’t say a whole lot but his actions speaks volumes, the way he plays the game and how smart he is. I will tell you, the way he is on both ends of the ice is as good as anyone I have seen. How he hasn’t been recognized as a Selke candidate a little bit more often is sort of astounding to me, so I will be pounding that drum. He is as a complete of a player as there is in the National Hockey League. I think the world of him and I don’t know him that well yet. We are just starting a journey together. He is a really great player and a really great person. I have really enjoyed working with Nicklas.
