No doubt in my mind he can step in and contribute in the NHL, he has the frame and the style of play to be able to make that transition. However, is it better for him to play in the NHL as a fringe third/fourth liner, or is it better for him to work on his offensive game in the Q?

I'd prefer the latter, but if we get hit by a lot of injuries, I wouldn't be surprised if Lou uses an emergency call up on him.
