I don't think he has the smarts to be a #1c. A good defenisively aware puck distributing #2 yes. His ultimate potential? Datsyuk.



So do we. That's the problem.
Best possible outcome: Datsyuk (-like)
Worst possible outcome: Decent two-way center who can play bright at some days with average FO stats but good PK stats.

IMO.

A change of scenery could be great for him, maybe not. Maybe it will make it even worse. Maybe more patience from us is the best, maybe nothing will change. We're just a bit clueless right now.
