Don't confuse hockey IQ with skill and talent.
And he most certainly isn't a first line player, but this team has a serious problem at LW, and right now, he's the team's best LW.
Well I guess I should be clearer in how I define hockey IQ. I will admit he has a good knack to getting open. He is solid defensively. However, he has poor playmaking/decision ability with the puck(which I feel goes along with hockey IQ).
Bear in mind his Hockey IQ is not terrible, just not what we need for our first line. I totally agree that he is completely ahead of schedule when it comes to his development.
