I'm kind of starting to worry given that he really hasn't progressed in terms of point totals since his draft season. Granted, there is much more to a prospects game than point totals but ideally you would like to see him progress on the scoresheet.
I don't agree with that worry. He'll be in Buffalo to score goals, and I think you'll see several seasons where his goals exceed his assists, a la Vanek. Right now, the reasons his pts/game is down is because his assists are way down (four in 25 games). But his goals/game is the best it's been since he was drafted. And if anyone was really concerned about his ability to create for other players, yesterday hopefully put those fears to bed--he made a very good Canadian team look silly on several occasions.
