He showed the same work ethic and board play, showed offensive vision - pretty impressive. But not dynamic or the next Zherdev or Bure.

I'm happy with his development thus far. If he finishes the year strong, has a strong start next year, I can see him getting a few games in the NHL.
I agree on all counts, except the stickhandle. His handle reminds me of a young Kovalev.
