(Other than the post directly above this one.)
Very much so, a guy that size with that skill and skating would be a legit top 6 prospect and a very valuable commodity.

That said I'm not ready to write him off as a future NHLer due to his success this season. I doubt that it will be with this team mind you, but if he becomes a valuable trading chip that would be great for our team. If we end up adding a big 2C then perhaps he lines up as our 2LW and Paajarvi gets dealt or drops down to the 3rd line?
