For that to translate to the NHL he's going to have to work on his skating, leg strength and overall strength. He has the size, and he's still young. I don't doubt that one day he will be a legitimate offensive force for the Flyers every time he steps on the ice. Year Three is going to be a big one, and I'm actually rather excited to see what happens in terms of his development.
This summer he needs to watch hours of Jagr using his ass to shield the puck
