Thanks for the perspective on Scheifele. The other attribute that I think is impressive about Scheifele is his attitude and work ethic. By all reports he's a wonderful young man, and the vets really like him (as do the coaches and management).
As an update, at camp he is working with Kane and Setoguchi, two wingers that shoot well and look to score.
Those of us that have observed Scheifele in camp are impressed with his substantial improvement in skating, and particularly acceleration.
He doesn't look out of place at this stage, and apparently is going to be given substantial opportunities to be an offensive play maker with the Jets this year.
