I don't Alex has a deceptive or hard shot from what I've seen last year.
    I agree with this, and think the Trevor Lewis comparison is apt. Iafallo is a worker, no doubt, but he's never been a prolific scorer at any level. I don't see that suddenly changing at the NHL level. My guess is that he'll be a heart-and-soul type guy who you can plug anywhere in the lineup, who will max out somewhere between 25-40 points a season.

    Agree but 40 points in a season, I think is wishful thinking.
    I think the kid was pushed in the NHL a couple years to early, then the pressure of being on the #1 line, he should have been given time in the minors to develop, his skill set was/is just not there yet.
    I'm hoping in his second year he will turn things around and become a better player, kind of like he was doing towards the end of the last season.

    Whatever he does, Iafallo.
