My only question is, can he reach this potential?
I think my expectations are that of a 30-35pt player. True third liner. But still could (long shot) be a 50 pt player.

With the most minimal improvement, had he stayed in junior, he would have exceeded a ppg, and probably by a lot.

Edit: I first wrote "Thornton" rather than Biggs. That is probably because I argued earlier that Biggs career might turn out like 89 draftee, Scott Thornton, as. A long term, useful, bottom six winger. I still think that is a very likel possibility for Biggs.

Maybe a little more offense. He's also already bigger. But good comparison. I'm really excited for his potential and what he could do for us. I think Cherry will love this kid.
