He's definitely a first or second line player, and would be the Flyers best RW this year, even if Roenick and Knuble are in, just like he was for most of last year before he got traded. He was outplaying Recchi and Amonte all the time. Like Gagne, he didn't have the huge contract to guarantee PP time or he'd have scored more. The kid is a gem and he's starting to fill out and get stronger.
I think you are overvaluing him. Williams will be a 20 goal a year guy if lucky.
