He does have a style which translates into the NHL (big, fast, work ethic) but I'm not convinced about his skill level.
I think most people stay realistic about his potential: 3rd liner, at best 2nd line.
I think he is highly regarded because, as you said, his style of play makes him pretty much a sure bet to become a NHL'er and his size and skating combined with that style of play suggests he is close to the NHL.
