That's because he's expected by Canadian and Toronto media to be the second coming of Wayne Gretzky, when all he truly might be is a second line forward.
He's still only 21, once he gets out of Toronto he will be a 40 point player, at least, at the NHL level
i could see that.....a decent player..... it is both a shame and comical what toronto can do for a young player's start in the league.
