Is he an All Star Caliber Player? How good can he be? What NHLer would you compare him to? He is off to a slow start this season due to injuries after tearing up the QMJHL last season before getting hurt last season. Lemme know your thoughts. How does he compare to other top prospects such as Fritsche, Carter, Perry, Brown, Bernier, Pouliot, Upshall and the like?

he's a big, mean sniper. early on, his skill set was compared to kovalchuk's but he lacks the drive that kovalchuk possesses. he plays well defensively, but is definitely more of an offensive player. it's tough to compare him to other prospects at this point, but time will tell. when his development reaches its apex, i see him as the sniping left wing legwand has never had, and i think that the two of them will combine for a dangerous first line and a lot of points.
