Only two, but I think the highlight reels speak for themselves. He scored 60 goals, and the majority of them seem to come from breakaway-type plays, and simply being the fastest guy on the ice by a fair amount. There's a definite pattern to the way he scores a lot of his goals. Unless the kid is the next Pavel Bure, that isn't going to fly in the NHL. Certainly not for more than a season.

I don't think it's a matter of "Will he need to change the way he plays, if he's going to be effective." I think that part is a given. No one in this day and age can consistently score like that.
