Actually "streaky" is not a word you tend to use as a positive notion when it comes to prospects.

Let's see how it goes for the rest of the season before we actually pick him in top-10 for the clubs.
The thing about Nicklas now is this:
- He began the season at about a PPG pace, but has been on this streak of sorts lately. Of course he's likely still not seen as a top 10 talent, but this streak may end up being more about having gotten over the transitional phase and having found a comfort zone.

There's plenty of hockey to play before the draft (thank goodness!), but it'll be interesting to see if we're currently witnessing the 'real' Jensen who has arrived or just his group of highlight games in this season. I think we're seeing the guy he can be on a consistant basis.
