The guy is an unreal goal scorer at every level of hockey (college through NHL). He at worst a solid hitting goal scoring 3rd liner. he probably maxes out as a 2nd line winger. Hes also not available. The guy is a freight train that scores goals.

A goalscoring winger with absolutely no vision. Hell never be a playmaker, hell never be a star, but put him with a playmaker and hell light the lamp every night.
His behind the back pass to Kadri who saucered it to Mac against the Flyers (I think) was a very nice play.
Saying he has absolutely no vision is ridiculous. You need to have vision to see where your teammates are to get open even as a goal scorer. He might not be the most gifted passer, but's he's got NHL-level offensive awareness.
youre gonna find a lot of overreacting people because of his hot start. Solid college player whos currently injured (scoped knee) but needed to earn a spot on the team and appears to have. Thought to be a pure goal scorer and hes definitely not disappointing. At worst, 3rd liner but definitely has potential and looks like the work ethic to be a 1b line player at best. Looks like he has developed some chemistry with Kadri and thats never a bad thing
Pure goal scorer. Took some time to get used to the pro game last year in his first go around. Was unstoppable in the AHL playoffs last year. He has 26 goals in his last 44 games played (AHL playoffs, 2012\13 AHL regular season, and 2012\13 NHL regular season. Kids a beauty.
if frattin can ever become a 25-25 guy i'd be ecstatic! personally I'm hoping for a 20-20 player, which along with all his intangibles would be incredibly valuable
He has the shot, skating and power to score 25 per year with a good playmaker. In fact, given a great playmaker (Spezza/Thorton lite), he can get to 30-35 goals per year IMO. Kinda like Milan Michalek in terms of goal scoring ability.
Basically what I'm saying is, he's the perfect winger for Kadri
