In Niagra he's not really given the offensive opportunity with Hamilton getting all the PP time. However, because of how raw his skills are, I think he has quite a lot of potential. Just as Prophet of Glennie mentionned, I think you could expect 30 points out of him, with the possibility of reaching the points of Chara. Also, he does hit and he can have quite a mean streak, but just like Cowen in Ottawa, there are a few times where he could crush someone, but instead he holds back, stays in position, and uses a poke check instead.

I dont see the Myers comparsion besides the size, he is much more offensive and more like a mobile Gill.
