I think he could be a guy that could thrive here, and contribute 10-20 goals on a solid third line. Which, of course, would be head and shoulders better than anything that we have on our third line now.
He was mentioned by the Pen broadcasters during the NBC nationally televised game vs. Washington on Sunday, they said he was a talented center on a team full of centers therefore he was moved.. his injury cut short his debut here but he's looked ok in the short time I've watched him.
Injured with a broken wrist (i think) right now. Outside of that, I have enjoyed his soft hands. HE hasn't been an offensive powerhouse, but he makes plays.
At one point he was our leader in PP goals as I recall with 4 ???? If he were a touch faster I think he'd be a top 6 player with his hands and vision. Also seems committed to defense. well rounded. I think he's a bit like Andrew Murray with better hands but a little less size.
I hope he sticks and slides in on the bottom 6 next year.
