I'm genuinely curious about this. If nothing else, as he's been compared to Mike Richards, he should be projected to be about a PPG player with the majority of his points being goals (more valuable than assists) and at his pace he was on was projected to do better than Richards in his draft year. On top of that he has the same PPG pace as RNH when he got hurt, but with more than 50% of those points as goals (his pace had him at 94 points in 67 games with 52 goals.) I know minor league scoring isn't the end all be all. But when you have a guy with that offensive output, and then take into account he's pretty much better at every other aspect of the game (defence, phyiscality, leadership) and he has great hockey sense and skating. I don't see why he wouldn't be your first pick if you're looking for a forward. Not to mention he could probably step in next year.
