It just seems like wherever you put him, he contributes. The guy is very sneaky and quick with his stickhandling, he has solid speed, he just makes things happen. IMO, he'd be an absolute perfect fit with the Sedins in Vancouver. Alone, a 2nd and a 5th for him would get it done for me.
I am not saying he has been bad I am just saying I wouldn't give up much value for him. If they get a 2nd and a 5th I would be psyched but I am not holding my breath.
