He'll probably never be more than a marginal NHL player, but I do think he has he ability to be a goalscorer if his head was into it.

Of course, it really isn't clear how the concusion will influence him over the longterm. I've seen quite a few players in the NHL who never recovered from their first concusion. I've also seen other who resumed their careers with little negative impact.
