    Lot of talent, lots of points in his college career, but:

    how good will he be?

    Legit top-6 talent?

    Too small for the big league?

    We'll see. He's developing pretty steadily and made the transition from the NCAAs to the AHL last year. At his current rate, he'll be with the big club in 2-3 years. How much of an impact he has is still up in the air. Possible Filppula or Zetterberg-lite.

    Wings see him as a top6 talent but he hasn't made the transition to the pro game yet. Will be interesting to follow him with the Griffins this season.

    I have him at least 20 times and every time he touches the puck you think hes either going to score or set up a goal. Probably in my top five College/Junior player I have seen in person

    I think he needs to bulk up a little more.

    Saw him play quite a few games with Maine, he's a very smart player.

    Looks to be comparable to Chad LaRose, but less skilled. This shouldn't come as a surprise to anybody, really, considering Chad's tenacity on the puck and nose for the net.

    see his description line, "#1 Chad Fan" i think he may be a little biased in his opinion of Chad Larose.
