He's been alright, but not that impressive is all I have said.

But that doesn't matter, because his hockey sense!!
Not really his hockey sense, but the plays he's already made this season. We don't really look back and marvel at some of the passes he's made, because they haven't been cashed in. If he was given some second unit PP time, his points would increase rather drastically. I also cannot overstate how much better his defensive game is this year compared to last. He's broken up 2 sure thing, 100% tap in goals with his back checking, and has done a great job of getting the puck out of the zone with a quick pass. I'd say he's been very good, especially for a 20 year old undersized forward. If you expect him to snipe like Tarasenko, then I don't know what to tell you. His game has always been making smart, effective passes to open players, and he's done that multiple times this season. I don't know how you realistically thought he would be playing better than he is right now.
