He's the kind of guy who can slide up into the top six to take the heat off what will be smaller offensive guys (like a Gaudreau).
absolutely. i think you are bang on when you say they learn to adapt. biggs isnt stupid, he lacks those tools precisely like you said to be a true offensive threat all the time. i like that he can play with finesse at times, and thats a key part of what will let him be a complimentary offensive player, but he is learning like you said to do more of the dirty work.
bill guerin light makes sense, that or something like mike knuble. key for him is that he is a complimentary offensive player, he can help the true offensive guys bring it out.
