The problem is, though, is that he isn't even half as skilled as Daigle was at the same age.

All I've seen are excuses for his poor play this year. Injuries. Lesser linemates. Whatever else people can think of. The fact remains that it's his draft year and he's going to miss his point totals of last year by 20 or so points. That is just dreadful and will cause him to PLUMMET. Stats aren't everything, but this guy should be producing more than he has been if he wants to be a top 10 pick.
