Four points in Game 2 against a very good Russian team says a lot.
As I mentioned, I haven't seen him enough to really assess his limits. He has great skills and he's so strong on his stick that he is going to pile up a lot of points. I hope (for our sake) that they make a mistake and don't take him, but I'm not holding my breath. Assuming that he is there, someone is going to have to mark him deep in the offensive zone.
