Assets: Owns a very good shot, NHL skating ability and a goal-scorer's mentality. Can be an asset if used on the power play. Has played all three forward positions in the NHL.
Flaws: Lacks size and strength to win corner battles consistently. Disappears for extended periods of time, so he must find a greater level of consistency. Struggles as a bottom-six forward.
Career Potential: Inconsistent, yet versatile scoring winger.
This guy will not sniff the top 6 unless several guys go down with injuries, and isn't cut out for bottom 6 duties. If he can't win board battles, he can't play the cycle game. Unless this is a 2 way contract to add some AHL depth in case of emergency, I don't get it.
All 8 are ahead of him for slotting into the top 6, as well as maybe Sutter.
