I think he can be an x-factor kind of guy, being on a 2a or 2b line with all of that talent. When the speed and intensity of the game goes up he seems to respond (from what I've seen), and he might be the type of guy with all of that skill to get lost in the defense (in a good way).

I'm eager to see how he'll respond to a more physical game though, because he's not a giant. I'm hoping Richards will be a playoff mentor for him because like I said above, I think they have a lot of similar qualities to their game.
