It seems to me that Scheifele helps slant the ice almost every time he is out there. Even when he was in Winnipeg he seemed to help control the flow of the game. Of course he was very sheltered in his Winnipeg stint, but the game never looked to fast for him.
I am still not sure he will be an elite scorer at the next level, but I am very curious to see how it his game translates.
I would be quite fine with a 65 point two-way player who hits the 30 goal plateau a couple of times in his career. I think that's attainable, if he turns into more great!
