If that indeed proves to be the case, then I'll change certain aspects of my opinion on him for sure. We'll have to wait and see, as the opening pages of this thread suggest.

One thing to note – when he was scoring goals with Colorado, so many of those came on the rush and by parking on the back post for PP rebounds. The loss of 20 lbs and the increased jump could translate to more opportunities off the rush like we saw twice last night. Which in turn will gain him more PP time and should bolster his numbers.
