I think he has the upside of being a very good offensive 2nd line centre. His vision and hockey sense are very, very strong. He's got soft hands and good skating, too. His stick is deceptive and he has a very strong base for a small guy.
Put him on a decent line with decent line-mates and he will produce well. He's still developing, too.
He's not worth much right now to other teams. Sens might be better off to really take a long look and evaluate him.
He looks good without question, but it's hard to imagine another teams GM getting too excited and offering too much. Part of a package for something bigger would probably be the best answer.
Agreed. He's pretty much the classic 'worth more to his team than around the league' player. He hasn't played a ton in the NHL yet, but will get a good look with all our injuries lately, and has looked pretty good so far. He was rumoured to be in a package for O'Reilly, for fans of other teams that may not know.
