There is room to progress and grow. And again, he's a full 200 feet of ice player. How many of those are in the league little less our team? A young good/great two-way forward with a developing offensive game just doesn't fall from the sky. At this current pace of his NHL career he's already ahead of where Kesler was with his development 3 years in. And he just turned 22.
As for his value; Okposo + Nielsen/Nelson. The first is untouchable given the new lottery system the NHL is implementing that gives every team a chance at the top pick (a la how the NBA does it)
Sorry I don't want the Isles to pay a guy 5 million per year when he had 1 good year and it is a concern that he never scored more than 20 goals in Juniors or the NHL. Not only that, but we also have to give up a good amount to get him. The guy could end up like Dubinsky.
