On the other side of the rink he is a hard worker and a dependable, while not selke caliber, defensive player. He even blocks the odd shot and throws a hit now and then.
However he is not and probably never will be a puck carrying player. He relies on his situational awareness a lot to position him self in the right place and i think he will be reliant on a good playmaking center to become really succesfull. Last year he had Järnkrok and hopefully this year he is going to get some time with Spezza.
Most of you are fooling your selves if you think he is going to light the world on fire in his first year. 15G 30P with a nice +/- is my "perfect scenario" prediction for his rookie year.
No, he most certainly would not be.
Sounds about right, I could see a 17G 21A for 38 Points in 73 games this year as his best outcome. I could see him drifting in the slot, while Turris drives the net and Alfy looks to shoot or set up Silf. Imo he is better suited for 2nd line duties with Alfy and Turris unless he shows instant chemistry with Spezza and then will play more shelttered 1st line minutes ala Greening.
First line, if healthy could be Lats, Spezza, Michalek. Injury prone yes, but deadly IF healthy.
