Either way, he showed that in college. Thats a large jump in a matter of 6 months considering he has yet to really dominate at the AHL level.
He wasn't expected to dominate at the AHL level. After a slow start he was real good down there. Playing a simple game in all situations. How many point he gets will be a function of opportunity (ie., amount of PP time). He's getting his chance. Let's see how he does. I'm betting he will make the Gomez trade a steal all by himself.
