I agree. The good thing is that Rakell isn't really limited to being a shut-down forward. I think that's still the criticism on him from his draft days, but ever since, he has shown too much offensive skill to not at the very least be called a two-way forward. He's definitely too talented to be pushed into that mold just yet. Many guys that later became great shut-down guys started off showing decent amounts of skill earlier on in their careers, so it's not impossible that he follows that curve, but he might as well be a guy that's productive on both sides of the rink.
