That's silly though. The kid exhibited good offensive ability in the AHL last season, his first in North America. He's still young and has plenty of development left in him. Is he going to become a guy who pots 100+ points in a season? Highly doubtful. But from the many times I've seen him, he seems to have the latent ability to produce as a second line center.
