Interesting you say this. I've put it out there 2-3 times on this board - it seems so logical the way he can operate in the offensive zone. But his game isn't rooted in physicality whatsoever. There's no room for soft big guys in our bottom-6. He'd have to learn to engage along the boards and protect the puck better to play that PF roll.

I'd rather give him 2-3 years to develop at that level. Playing with and learning from Marincin should be great for his development
