That is a far more realistic comparison than Jason Arnott who was a 1st round pick and a very very good 1st line player in this league for a long time.
Agreed, we have a tendency to overrate our own prospects here a great deal. He is no Brian Boyle, he is DEFINITELY no Jason Arnott. I could potentially see him developing his power forward game a lot more and becoming a 60 - 70 point winger if he gets significantly more disciplined and becomes willing to use that size more. That said though, honestly I'd be very surprised to see him make it in Torts' system. If he comes in next season and does well, I see him being trade bait at the deadline.
