Thomas should be used as a roamer on the PP. Just get open and one time the puck. Like Brett Hull except at a much lesser level of course. If he wants to be an NHLer, his one timer and passing are going to be his bread and butter.
I'd say Nash already has his Robin in Hagelin who also allows Nash to play on the side he is most comfortable at.
How does Thomas handle the ES game though? Is he aggressively pursuing the puck and hitting a lot despite his size like Zucc, or is he mostly floating around focusing on offence? If it's the former, I wouldn't be opposed trying him on the tertiary scoring line (4th line in reality) and putting him on the PP as the primary shooter. We'd still need someone like Nash or Brassard who can shoot from the other side as well so he can't be eliminated like Prucha was. It would require a RH PPQB though, so I guess Strålman would have to be the pointman.
