He was a one dimensional 40 goal scorer when he was young (never reached 40 but pace was 40. Missed 12 games)

He's become a better all around offensive threat now that he's found some consistency with linemates and better ice time. When guys like that start consistently making plays, are just turned 25 and always been a 30-40g scoring threat each year... they are at the bare minimum budding superstars.
