The only thing they have said is his weight and getting pushed off the puck. His skill is easily NHL ready.
Well that's the thing. One blogger tweeted from camp that he was pushed off the puck and everyone started to run with that as gospel when most people didn't see him in camp and there was little coverage of it. There's not been any indication the Flyers are unhappy with his play. In fact it seems like they are putting him in positions to succeed. Last night he was on the top line with JVR and Simmonds and he's been getting big minutes. I'll be surprised if he doesn't get at least a 9 game look.
