He may not end up being more than a guy who's constantly on the AHL-NHL shuttle. He may be a consistent 20-goal scorer in the NHL. Time will tell.
This is where I'm at, even after his rough start to the season with the Amerks where he was arguably their worst player.

The last two or three games have been an improvement though, as he's shown flashes where he'll use his body to power his way to the net. It's the fact that he doesn't do this consistently that is worrisome.
