You are right that speed doesn't mean points, but Ryan Johnson and Chris Porter are also over 6'1" and over 200 pounds and are defensive specialist. Really not a good comparison. Most of your light weight players ala Steve Sullivan, Doug Gilmour, and Brian Gionta are point getters. Not too many lightweight defensive specialist.

If he can do it, then great for us. I'd love to see a huge year out of him ala Doug Gilmour. I just don't see rating someone that is a smallish third or fourth liner over a 6' 3" center with top 6 potential or third and fourth liners with more ideal size. That's just my opinion right or wrong....
