Eh, how I label him has no bearing on his development, so what's the harm?

He's an extremely small forward that is a plus skater and energetic, but doesn't do anything else notable. He's already dealing with concussions and struggled with physical play as far back as his QMJHL days. That doesn't bode well for him as a professional. I just don't see anything that indicates he'll be anything more than a career AHL energy guy. That's fine for him personally, but it's not something that excites me as a Rangers fan.
