Thoughts on Christian Thomas's upside?

[Another Christian Thomas thread - in particular because I wanted to add a poll. Mods, if you want to merge with the old one, please go ahead.]

So, what are people's thoughts on Stumpy's kid? I know a lot of us (including myself) haven't had the chance to see him play in person or even more than highlights on video, but personally I'm getting quite excited. Going by third party reports, highlights and, yes, stat surfing, it's hard not to be blown away by the kid. The OT game winner last night was just the icing on the cake.

2nd in the OHL in goals playing with no other high-level prospects. Elite sniping skills. Small(er) in stature, but unlike Bourque who scares the bejesus out of me, he appears a lot more solidly built and resistant to physical play. (I also think he may have grown and added some weight since he was drafted.)

I'm starting to think he may have 1st line RW potential. Thoughts?
