I know he is still relatively young, but he isn't exactly a rookie at 25.
I've always liked him in my limited viewings when he was a Blue Jacket and, not unlike MZA, he's been a difference maker since he joined the team. Going by my own eye test, I think he's already an excellent 2C. It's one of the reasons the team has looked so good since the trade - all of a sudden we have 1Cs on both of our first two lines and a 2C on our third. I think he may even still have upside beyond that. Notice how much more time we've spent in the offensive zone and how many more quality scoring chances we've had? Very hard to match up against.
