Personally I like the guy a lot. A pleasant surprise. He is crafty, sleek, skilled and very creative. He is also calm for a rookie. He can point a power play, carry the puck up from behind our net and can make smart/safe plays under pressure. Like any rookie there are some costly turnovers but that is part of the learning process.
I think he is identical to Kapanen and sometimes I can't tell who it is. He is definitely better than Jones, Seids and Therrien. I'm thinking with time he could be a 3rd or 4th for sure.
There is no way at all he can become a 3 or 4th. IMO he is nothing more than a depth dman possibly 6th at best. I donít see him in the light that you do though. He has played well at times but the more he plays the more he will be exposed for what he is IMO. They need an upgrade at that position for the playoffs.
