C'bus didn't plan on giving up a 60+ point guy who's significantly younger than Gaborik in that trade and we didn't take him for one. I fully expect him, however, to come close to that number next season.
Hes 190 pounds, he is absolutely undersized, and he is not very physical anyway. Hes an average skater.

He doesnt ooze talent at all, hes 26, he isnt going to suddenly develop into a great player his 8th season in the league
