It's not like we're slotting this kid to play anytime soon. Theoretically, if this kid were to hit the NHL, it'd be years from now. His style doesn't sound like a bottom 6 forward, and with primarily offensive tools, I don't see the comparison to replacing a guy like Zack Smith. He either tops out and plays as a top 6 forward, improves his defensive and physical game to be valued as a bottom 6 forward one day, or he never makes the NHL.

Right now, from what I'm hearing, he's no bottom 6 forward.
