Having established AHL level scoring takes pressure off the kids, at least in my hockey world view. Adam's got Andreychuk abilities from the slick hands in tight, the redirections, and of course the heavy feet and relatively un-physical size. Anyone who can score regularly is going to have a place, especially with how the league is again bulking up and there is so little space around prime scoring areas. He's got that. Now, can he bring it and round off the edges in areas that he needs work? I'm strangely optimistic after seeing him so far in Dev Camp.
