He looked lost on offense. Great speed, great size, but no offensive creativity. Looked like a bigger, less confident version of Sjostrom. Until he learns offensive creativity, he should just park himself in front of the goalie and use his size and long reach to get garbage goals. That said, I can definitely see him becoming a very competent third liner very quickly. Obviously his potential is much more than to be a third liner, but for these playoffs, I think he can adjust to the NHL fast enough to be a solid third liner as quickly as the second round.
