Add a few cents here...

Vlad really was hampered by the shoulder when he came back, trying to find a place on the team.

He's centering the second line now and looks fantastic. He's one of the fastest guys on the team and knows when to turn on the jets. He was evidently getting under the skin of multiple Portland players in that series, so he doesn't mind that role.

He needs to add about 10-15 pounds of muscle, but at his age that shouldn't be a problem. If he can get stronger and keep his speed he should have the skill to make the jump.

Like was said before - top 6 role here next year with a cup of coffee then compete for a spot the year after. I could see him being a 40-50 point guy in the AHL next year, if not more.
