He is a big and lanky, he could use that more but doesn't. IF and a big IF b/c he has been told what to do here to make him successful, he would be great on a 2nd/3rd line MAX.... He needs to have confidence in his speed and ability. Which I'm not sure he has at all. Maybe a change of scenery would be good. I like the kid but he lacks finish.
I was all about this guy when was drafted, I thought he was going to be the second or third best forward taken in the draft behind Tavares and maybe Duchene. Clearly I was wrong, but I still think he could be a solid second liner, especially with a guy in the middle like Schenn or Couturier. I doubt it would happen though. The Oilers will probably want more than the Flyers are willing to give. I could see him getting dealt though.
