I wonder if under Martin's tutelage this kid can become something other than a lone-wolf type scorer. I love his shot and his fearlessness in open ice, but he needs to learn how to work better with his linemates if he wants to stick with the team. Also, a coach like Martin is not going to tolerate his own-zone coasting and lackadaisacal attittude on the backcheck.

Agreed. He needs to develop his defensive game since he is very unidimensional right now. Being only a scorer is not so bad, but when you have some other youngsters who are able to score AND help on the backcheck, they will be favored. Its all in his advantage to work hard and not be the last to enter our zone when the opposition is on an attack if he wants to stick with the bigboys.

Agree with everything you said, he's got decent enough speed and a very nice shot/release combo that is actually pretty similar to Ryder but he has a long way to go in terms of using his linemates and playing in his own zone, which are flaws that won't be tolerated by Martin.

I really like how he just drives to the net,nose first,full speed to go score his goal.Put him on the second line and just enjoy the show all we can expect from this young kid is some goals,goals and more goals :D

now go easy on me with this statement but i think dags is a replacement for higgins. i'd put them at the same calibre of player.

Higgins had solid defensive skills, he put himself in position for a lot of scoring chances he just kept missing, if he had as good a shot as D'Agostini I think he would be an elite forward.

well i do agree with you about the defensive part, higgins is better defensively but dags seemsto put himself in good scoring chances. that's where i made the comparison....and Dags doesm have THE SHOT.

ps this is just an opinion
