He sure got some skill, but his max upside is likely a 3d liner. We have enough prospects who are safe enough bets to get there one day in Lander, Hartikainen, Hamilton, Pitlick, and possibly Martindale etc.
My bad, I was certain Tikhonov was a center and to me, he would be an upgrade over O'Marra (in my pretend world where they're the same position). I agree on the wings though. I don't see him replacing anyone in that condition. So far in his career he's seemed solid defensively and is able to chip in a bit offensively for his role. All a moot point since he's not a center.
