I get ytour point but the guy has skill and great hockey sense; the problem is there is nothing really remarkable about his game per say. We may have to temper our expectations of where we think he'll end up as a player, production wise. Personally, I'd be happy if he eventually grows into a solid 60-65 point 2nd line center.
To accomplish that, he needs to get physically stronger, improve his skating and learn how to win 50% of his faceoffs!
