As we saw last year, when given the puck in scoring area he can score goals. In order to do that players have to be able to get him the puck when he is open in those areas. There are not many players like that on the Whale right now. Not saying it won't happen, as they have quite a few pretty talented forwards who are very young, but it hasn't happened with any consistency.

The same thing happened to him in the WJC's his 2nd year. He was open quite a bit but he had to work VERY HARD to pretty much do everything on his own. He is not that type of player.
