Everyone talks about how his season wasnt as good as his rookie year, but you have to remmember he played about 20+ fewer games than last year and still beat his rookie pts totals.
He plays for a HORRIBLE petersborough team and is constantly defended against by the opposing teams top players. I know he is an all offensive player but he is becoming more aggressive in wanting and taking the puck himself rather than waiting for it to come to him. He isnt defensive savvy but he can learn that. what we need is a guy with HIGH offensive potential and he is defiantly it.
If we pass on him, i think well be kicking ourselves in the face a couple of years down the road.
He played 59 games his rookie year, and 55 this year. Not sure how that math works out.
