A lot of times if he’s on the right side he won’t be able to come through the middle and take that shot in the middle so he may have to more often go wide and beat his guy wide.

So I think defensively it might help him more along the boards and with chipping it out, but he’s so good that he’ll figure it out and find a way to figure it out."
