I hope a team doesn't waste a top 10 pick on him. Sure fire NHLer, but he definitely doesn't have that top potential.
High skilled power forwards generally don't exist. The NHL hasn't really had one since Lindros or Shanahan (circa early 90s). People will throw out all kinds of names, but it has been ages since we saw a player with a great combination of high end skills, good size and a nastiness to keep defenders on their toes. Sadly, I feel like modern "power forwards" are far too polite, or just don't have a whole lot of skill.
