I said it before and Ill say it again, I think a lot of the projections that he could be a consistent top 6 player were off base. I think hes starting to settle into a 3rd liners role. Speed, forecheck, well-schooled and defensively responsible. I dont think he has much of an offensive game.
I don't think goal scoring will ever be his thing, however I do have to say that he thinks the game very quickly which is reassuring considering the speed at which he physically plays. His playmaking has been a real eye-opener for me at this level as I didn't see that part of his game in college.
