Size, skating and skill. Tremendous vision and uses his size and speed very effectively. Could be a solid 2nd tier #1 center in the NHL if he pans out. The concerns are about his compete level on a shift-to-shift basis. His play declined in the 2nd half of the season, but it's been said that he was battling Mono late in the year and through the playoffs.
There's also the KHL factor. CSKA schooled kid, and that organization is teeming with cash right now. He hasn't given any indication that he'd jump the pond, but it's a concern regardless.
