What else can you (or others) say about his game?
He's not only big, but he has an nhl frame to add muscle. He's also an absolutely fantastic skater and very fast. Reminds me of Jeff carter a lot, in terms of his release and his stride. But he's also very physical. He hits and he will drop the gloves to defend teammates. He also has one hell of a one timer from the circle which is something this team has been lacking severely on the pp.

IMO, besides a defenseman, a player like mantha is exactly what this team needs up top.

As far as nhl comparisons, I'd compare him to jeff carter, Corey perry or James Neal.
