He needs to do more than look good, he needs to be productive. Looking good is fine for 2nd rounder or undrafted college kid, it's not enough for the 2nd overall pick.

Eric Staal, Evgeni Malkin, Bobby Ryan, Jordan Staal, Drew Doughty, all 2nd overall picks. That's the level of expectation he has to live up to, fair or not.

That being said, I'm willing to give him at least a few more years to see if he develops or not.
