People have to remember that the Oil Kings are a stacked team and because of that he doesnt get as much ice time or PP time. If he was on any other team he would be for certain a second line center and getting that regular shift on the PP and more faceoffs down in the offensive zone.

Ewanyk is by far a better prospect than Bigos. Bigos is mean and everything, but I believe he will be to slow for the NHL.
I don't deny he has speed and can skate circles around any of the guys I listed. I'm only going by his scoring and he just hasn't ever shown he can contribute. And yes I realize scoring isn't everything, but it is the most important thing by a country mile. And you have to admit that you must have some scoring to be able to play in the NHL. Unless he just isn't showing his offensive prowess I just don't see it happening.

But again, I hope I'm wrong, I would love for him to turn into a hard hitting 55% FO centre who can pot 15 goals and 15 assists. I'm just not betting on that happening.
