If he's not sniping, he's completely invisible. No physical game whatsoever, plays on the perimeter for the most part. He got to the NHL based on his shot, which is pretty good. There's nothing else there, IMO.

Someone here said they saw him as a 20-goal, 60 point player? Like... sure, it could happen, if the stars aligned and literally everything went absolutely perfect for him... but really, it's never going to happen. He MIGHT have the TOOLS to be that guy if he starts working on the parts of his game that don't involve shooting the puck at the net (with some glaring defensive deficiencies, however), but he simply doesn't have the toolbox to be that guy.

Anyways, good for him to get a 2nd chance at the NHL, the Devils seem to be a team that can occasionally turn guys around, and he's still young enough that he might figure it all out before he blows his last chance. Hope he does well / can stick around New Jersey for a couple of seasons.
