He will add a much needed physical presence to the lineup, wherever he plays. He's more than good enough to play on the 3rd line and it would be interesting to see what he could do with a good playmaker like Immonen. Him and Hollweg could really provide interesting shifts, if on the same line.
I agree except I don't think it's a matter of REALLY improving.

Totals of 16, 13 and 14 goals aren't too base for a 22,23 and 25 year old player.

20 goals is all of goals over what he did on a worse team in the same role, wouldn't be a huge leap.

I don't think this a straight gringer acquisition here, the kid has a lot more upside than people seem to believe.
