If Thomas was 3 inches taller he would be top 3 material, no question about it.
I will take the quote below with a grain of salt, especially the Stamkos comparison. But everything else I agree with.
From Rangers blog:
At the risk of making people twist my words, Thomas stylistically is very comparable to Steven Stamkos. He is like Stamkos in that he is not particularly flashy, but is absolutely deadly when given an open shot between or near the circles and is a killer on the powerplay especially. He was voted as the player with the most "deadly shot" in the OHL at the end of the 2011 season. With Nash out and the powerplay as dysfunctional as it has ever been, a young player eager to make his mark and who has no fear in unleashing what is a killer shot could be an asset. The concern with Thomas will be consistency and his two-way game, which still needs work.
