Not even close. If he doesn't start to play with some consistency, he's always only going to be a good second liner to average first liner. That sucks given his skill set is off the charts with natural talent.
Yeah.

You need your first line players to be consistent. They can't disappear for half a season at a time. I find it extremely troubling.

He still has time to find that next gear and keep it locked in, but it isn't much time.
