He has a lot to show in a short amount of time, and his numbers with the Phantoms are probably inflated because it must be a shock to the anatomy of the front office that they actually has a competent offensive player. To put him in our Top 9 forwards when he's
played a full schedule is pretty foolish.
Unfortunately we have grown too accustomed to having a top 9 filled with top 6 players. I agree he is nowhere near a top 6 player, nor has he demonstrated being competent enough to be above a 4th liner.
But considering our cap constraints and weak prospect pool, he seems like the most likely candidate to be given that opportunity.
