I'm not so sure he will be very productive in the league. At best I think he will be a 2nd line forward, but I think it seems more likely that he will be a 3rd line guy. If I had to compare him to a NHL forward, it would possibly be a former Kings player, Brian Smolinski.

Sometimes he coasts out there, but he has learned to play a more complete game (which is what Aulin did pickup on). But as a result, his numbers declined. Aulin really never really displayed any amazing skills on the ice or do something that made him stand out. His only memorable game as a King was when he scored two goals against Carolina in an absolute thrashing in which the Kings netted 8 goals. And I believe those two goals still stand to be the only ones in his young NHL career thus far.
