Based on what I've seen, he's Blake Wheeler 2.0. Depending on your view of this draft he might be worth a mid-late first for a team that's willing to work with him. Personally, I wouldn't bother until the mid-late second round because I have my doubts that he'll ever put it all together. You'll always be wanting more out of the guy.
He's got some great skating, a good release and goal scoring intincts but he's just too soft. Size means nothing if he's going to constantly play on the perimeter and avoid contact. He might as well be Grimaldi's size. I'll admit though, I'm a bit biased against big players who play small so I tend to discount them, thus this might be a tad harsh.
Yeah, I was thinking a smaller, more mans Dustin Penner myself.
I can see some Blake Wheeler too.
The thing is, as Craig MacTavish and Dean Lombardi learned, you can't teach intensity.
