"He's an elite player with an elite drive train," Toronto coach Mike Babcock said. "He's going to make us better, and he'll develop into a top, top center in the National Hockey League."
"He's a real good man, a real good person," Babcock said. "Obviously, he's in the last year, coming up, of his deal. I know he treats people real well and he'll be a good guy to be around our kids."
