I didn't see "the next Milan Lucic" in him at the draft and I definitely don't see it him yet.

I've seen him play a handful of times this year and he didn't look much different than last season.

I still don't think he has the hands, release, vision or first-step to be an overly offensive guy at the next level.
Exactly. If people are just checking his stats to see his progression than you are being mislead. He has improved slightly but much of his improvement in the production comes from his stellar linemates. I have watched him several times and I come away no more impressed than I was last year. He's actually not all that noticeable (only when he's running wild)
