He's definitely a low end 2nd liner at best right now. He didn't play enough last year to pencil him in for 30 goals and 60 pts a year. Plus last year was the first time he showed us any kind of hands at all, so he'll have to do more to erase the memories of stone hands. I'd love for him to be that guy, but I sure wouldn't put money on it.
