Yeah true but wasn't he able to go something like 230 points in 234 games in the WHL? Then in one AHL season have like 22 goals and 24 assists? Clearly not elite talent I can agree with that but a quality 1st liner if given the right line mates. His ability to fight and hit and still pass and score is clearly a nice fit if oh idk say he's leftwing to Richards - Gaborik starting next season. To me he is our own version of Erik Cole. Much like Cole he'll hit 65 points as a career best but does all those little things that you might not get out of a 80 point+ stud. Like hitting and pking so who knows potential is a tricky thing.
