His offensive abilities wowed me on a few occasions. He just missed on a couple prime opportunities and he can handle the puck through traffic with speed better than most Jet forwards.

If he can get his offensive game rolling and smooth out overall he could be a nice puck moving #4/PP specialist. He really doesn't hit though. Like Toby levels of none. The hitting doesn't mean much to me, but he is a little soft on the boards, which is odd for a guy that size.

EDIT

I thought Postma looked shaky early, but apart from the one brutal turnover that led to a shorty he was pretty steady after his trip to the press box.
