This is not a knock and should have been expected but I don't think the Panthers can count on him to be an offensive force next season.
You needed to create a thread to state the obvious?

Did anyone expect Bjugstad to come up and start tearing things up?

From what I've seen at BB&T - he looks big out there. His strength is obvious - even against NHL men - when he takes the body it's generally the opposing player who gets the worst of it... and it's only going to get better.

In a couple of years, I think this guy is going to create major headaches for opposing teams.
