I'm not sure that it's all that important that he gets "proper top 6 usage" or powerplay time. That would pump his personal stats, but that doesn't seem like a priority. He's already producing pretty well, especially for the minutes he plays. It'd be cool to see him earn a place on the powerplay, but he does have to develop some kind of standout skill there. If he was 55% on faceoffs like Horvat I think it'd be easier to have him out there, but he's got a long way to go. I think the more important thing is that he makes it easier to put a guy like Monahan, who has an impressive offensive resume but is questionable defensively, in the 1C spot. From what little I've seen of Sturm I'm hopeful that he can help in that respect as well.
