His shot is also arguably the best on the team (I think there is no debate on his wrister)...

Since entering the NHL, in playoffs and reg season, he has played 214 games and taken 397 shots.

That is 1.86 shots per game.

He has 61 goals in those shots (at 23 goals per 82 games) for a shot % on 15.4%...

the NHL average is ~9%.

Since he has started playing in the NHL, his regular season sh% of 15.1% is 13th in the league amongst players with over 100 games played and over 40 goals.

His shot is one of the best in the league, his D is awesome, his skating is great.

He can definitely play in the top six, and I imagine put up ~55 points if he did... but the question is does that make the team better.

Him playing LW with G could be interesting, I know he plays more RW, but he is a right shot. Definitely worth giving it a go at some point if team scoring dried up.
