Most accounts that I've heard were of the exact opposite; that he looked out of place at times and tried to play a top-6 game with little or no top-6 skill. At least by his signing in Springfield, the Jackets aren't on the hook for counting that contract (they can only have up to 50 players signed at a time) ... maybe he will develop into a solid piece for Springfield, but I don't see him ever cracking the lineup in Columbus.
