2 goals in 21 games as a Left Winger in the AHL... I gotta say we should give him his chance at center... He carries the puck very well, and pivots a lot like a center does, on the left side, I find more often than not, he can't make the play to get by the defender, and sets up around the hashmarks with the puck (to make a play) before heading low
I think the brass saw his speed (which is rather impressive) and said he had the makings of a good sniping LW'er, but I don't think he has the head to be an effective LW'er... To me his game screams center. Gotta give it to the Hossa's I think they're right on this case.
He cant even make plays for himself, cant carry the puck longer than 3 secs so how could he be center? To be a center you have to want the puck and be confident and thats just not the case for him.
