This type of somewhat skilled, somewhat big, fairly tough guy who can keep up with the play is exactly the guy whose absence they've been lamenting on the bottom lines...
I think a lot of people were convinced he was a blossoming top-six forward after the productive year he had in the OHL. That, coupled with the fact that he's now hit the 3 year mark since he's been drafted, and I think some folks are losing patience. Such is the wonderful world of prospect watching.

If he can become a 4th line guy who hits, scraps, forechecks well, and can chip in a few goals here and there, then you've gotta be pretty happy with that from a 4th round pick. I do think there's a bit more versatility there that will come as he continues to develop as a pro. I just hope the Rangers don't give up on him too quickly.
