Again, not bashing the kid. He's been phenomenal since he arrived and I hope this was the change he needed to finally realize some of his potential.
Not just consistency(he's had a point in 7 of the 12 games he's played which is not bad), but is he the kind of player that is gonna lose puck battles in the playoffs? He's very good on the offensive side of the game, still not sure he is the kind of player that can win battles for the puck, gets knocked around pretty easy.

Offensively, gotta like his natural instincts. Up until last night his FO% has been a nice surprise too.
