He's been working at improving his game and becoming a much more complete, all-around player. He even talked about that in his blogs that he wrote for CDC throughout training camp (yeah I read those things
). In it he mentioned how much of an impression guys like Burrows and Kesler left upon him when he saw just how good they were not only offensively, but also defensively too.
Personally I think he could become a useful bottom-6 player for us down the road - having a big body with some skill and ability to score always helps. He just needs to continue working on his consistency and playing with even more of an edge. He was already taking on PK duties and taking faceoffs too. Frankly he could be quite a versatile guy to have in the future once he develops fully. He's already got the tools, like hockey sense and skating ability.
