He might become a usefull nhler one day, but so far, considering his middle of the 1st round selection, he's definitely a bust...
He looks a lot like Ryan White, but at least, White was a 3rd round selection...
Agreed. The reason for his inability to translate his success to the NHL as you put it could be lack of foot-speed. Huge difference between the AHL and NHL in terms of speed of the game. It's much much faster.
