He'll be that guy you insert on a line that is struggling just to help them get going.
As much as people here want to believe that he might have hands.....he doesn't.

I like the pick because he is big, fast, physical, intelligent, and strong defensively. He should be able to move into the lineup in relatively short order. He was picked right around where he should have been picked and you are right about him going top 5 if he had Kovalev's hands......but that goes for every player in the first two rounds other than goaltenders and midgets.
