I'd say Petry has a better 1st pass than him. He and Potter have similar break-out ability

And look who you you're comparing him to - Smid, N.Schultz, Potter, Fistric - these are not guys you hold as the benchmark for decent transition play.

Compared to Gilbert and Petry as rookies, his ES puck-moving ability is actually lagging.
