So far I'd say he's exceeded my expectations (as has Richards) considering he's a rookie and he looks as comfortable and confident as a vet. He's surprisingly strong on the boards, a good forechecker, has good hands, smooth skater, great wrist/snap shot that seems to constantly handcuff goalies, goes hard to the net, shoots the puck from any angle, and throws the body.
I don't really have much negative to say about him other than he needs to put a little more weight on his frame. As he fills out over the next few years I really think he's going to be a force (moreso than Richards although he will be good in other ways). He a natural scorer and I think the projections on him have been accurate.
As far as who he will play with in the future it's tough to say. The Flyers have such a glut of centers he may be moved around for a while but he's definitely going to be a #1 center for this team in a couple years probably playing with Gagne.
