Maybe a bit harsh, but serious. He may have solid bottom 6 potential, like I said, but I also think that's his absolute ceiling. I also thought he looked fundamentally flawed across the board next to just about every forward on the ice during the QMJHL/Russia clashes in the Subway Series. Looks great at times in the Q, though, for sure; like Grigorenko, only with less than 1/2 of Grigorenko's talent.
