He is a legit top line forward. When he was in Nashville (not loaded with skill, I know), but it was obvious he was our most talented forward on the ice, constantly. His skill is not over-rated. As a player? Maybe. I don't think saying he doesn't player defense is fair, because he hits occasionally, but his positioning is poor and his attitude worse.

If some fairy came and gave him a work ethic and a true desire to play in the NHL, I could see him developing into a top 30 forward, maybe even top 20, but I think he is happy and best-suited to be the star of the KHL.

Skill =/= how good a player is
