I not sure what is the talent of him.
If you can answer me please.
He has the potential to be a scoring line forward... great, quick shot, decent skater, good skills with the puck, but on tad on the small side. Most people say that his lack of size was his problem in his short stint with the Blues last year, but the main issue was really him needing to adjust to the speed of the NHL game.
Stich is right. He seemed a little lost at times on his first stint, like he was taking it all in. He always seemed to try to make that one extra move, but it usually wasn't needed and never resulted in much. Didn't seem to want to shoot either.
But he came back up late in the season, and far more passionate and not hesitant. Looked like a different player, IMO.
You can read some recent comments on him in a thread I started a couple of weeks ago. I started this one:
and then from there, someone else took the question to another board:
He has tons of potential, to be a first/second liner. The question is can he put it together?
