I disagree, I think he will be an effective "power" forward in the Mike Richards/Landeskog mould. I think he will be able to protect the puck down low and outwork D men physically and take the biscuit to the net.

The term "power forward" is being thrown around more than it used to....and there are more & more power players that aren't huge (mostly because the game has gotten so fast).
