There's something to be said about a player who can make those strides. It shows he's receptive to coaching and confident enough to be constantly working on the holes in his game. Of course, there's a limit to how much he can improve, but I believe him to have NHL level attributes.
That's fine. I will say that it's certainly possible with the sheer amount of improvement in his game that he could become an NHL regular.

However, what I'm puzzled by is the almost cult-like status of his play even though it was for a short period of time, not demonstratively significant compared to his peers, and actually proved that he was a liability both with the puck and when getting out of position to the point where he would take penalties.
