If he has a good shot and uses it, being a RHS he might not be a bad guy to have around.
He has more offensive upside than Kunitz does from what I can tell. I guess a good comparison would be a hybrid between Patrick Sharp's offensive skills/defensive work ethic and Kunitz's physical play. He is also bigger than either of those players as well. He still needs a lot of polishing though. At the best he is still maybe 3 years away from playing in the NHL. He will need at least a season or two in the AHL after another season or two in the SEL.
