I know he's snake bit at Bingo, but I still really like him. He's big, very good skater and seems to have great hands. We've also seen his tremendous shot. All great skills to have at this stage.
What I see when I see him play at Bingo is the rink appears small to him, he's having a hard time seeing the play develop but I believe that is because of the ice size not because of a lack of hockey sense. He just looks cramped out there - things happen so much faster on small ice and he hasn't adjusted yet. Passing lanes are smaller and close faster, guys are on you faster, etc. I think once he adjusts and becomes comfortable in the AHL, his offense will show.
I still look at him and think he could be a very good #2C. A #2C that you win Cups with. I know they probably want him to work at wing, but think he's a better C.
