I want to know from those who have seen him, is his scoring prowess going to translate to the pro's? Can he be a 25-30 goal scorer in the NHL? Or is he just a guy that is going to just be an AHL star and have his offense fizzle out once he hits the pro's? I know he has more facets to his game than scoring, but I want to know if he can be a second-liner in the future, a guy who can put up 50-70 points and 20-30 goals a season. Or if he's going to be a very good thrid-liner, as expected.
possible 2nd line player, more likely a 3rd line player. and actually after we drafted him and he went back to juniors for his over age year he actually gained that touch.

i think he is capable of 20-25 goals - 30-40 assists
