Even if he puts on weight he is still a below average skater, and he's not tall. Doesn't help he plays with a really short stick. I think he's dynamite in the offensive zone but I think he will get killed in the neutral zone and by teams that forecheck well. Like Raffy at the end of his career.
I'd love to see him turn out like Enstrom, I just have a hard time seeing it.
