You say he'll be a 3rd liner in worst case, I say he'll be a 3rd liner in best case. I don't really see that much of a difference. His lack of vision and general awareness on the ice is what will prevent him from becoming a good 2nd liner. This is not something players start developing at the age of 24+.
His build, speed and shot will likely enable him to be an effective 3rd liner, if he gets a lot better in the defensive zone (this can be learned, so not too concerned about it atm). Worst case, he can be a Mike Brown type 4th liner. I really don't see how that's a bad thing. Even if he has absolutely 0 vision, I still love what Brown brings to the team.

Think of current contending teams. Which wingers could you see Frattin being able to replace without missing a beat? To me, Frattin on the 2nd line means that we severely lack quality wingers in order to be contenders.
