Meh.

I get that he's young, but, honestly, he reminds me of your typical "too fast for his hands" type player. I think he'll become a two-way, 40-50 point forward, but that's about it.
His hands are just fine. He is a big, power-forward. They take a little bit longer to develop but we have to remember, he was drafted the same year as Kreider. He is pretty much the Swedish version of Chris Kreider except for that in his draft year he was far more polished than him.

I would move MDZ + Thomas for Kreider. I may be in the minority but those types of players are SO hard to find.

Eventually they will have to move a defenseman as they just don't have enough room. Paajarvi would be a great target if he is available.

Paajarvi
Dubinsky
Kreider

That's LW depth.
