I've just never seen enough from him to indicate he'll blossom into what we're hoping.
His biggest problem this year is consistency, he has a good/great game every 2 or 3 games and in those games he doesn't put up points, but playing with plugs like Stortini won't help him, that's for sure. Some are saying he's still injured, maybe it's the case.

His tools are just fine to become an NHLer, he could improve his shot and his skating a bit, but what will make an average to above-average NHLer is his hockey IQ, he's just so smart on the ice. You could see last year he wasn't physically ready to be in the league, but he never looked out of place, just because he knew what to do and when to do it.
