I should add he was a great 2-way centre in Brampton. No reason he couldn't be in Buffalo with some hard work.
Based purely on what he exhibited in Vancouver, I'm capping him at a 35g-90p player.
Cerebral offensive player with a superb shot. Good positioning, good passing.
Doesn't have the game breaking physique or skating to hit triple digits, unless he finds himself on a ridiculously stacked team.
Anyway, he was poor defensively during his time in Vancouver. He's a very offensive minded player, looking to get by on defense and sometimes even cheating to create chances.
Not sure how much he's changed since I've watched him about 0 times since the trade, but I can't imagine his skating going from sub-par to above average in the span of a single season.
