As Tarasenko gets stronger, he'll just get better. He played a real sound game but a couple times it looked like he was overmatched a bit. If this is him playing when he's not accustomed to the NHL style of hockey, I can't want to see him when he is accustomed to it. A two way forward who can score at a ppg+ clip is just what the doctor ordered for this team.
Also, I wouldn't be surprised if Oshie has turned a corner and becomes a candidate to be a ppg player himself. The kid looks real good out there.
I think you could argue that every player can look outmatched during a couple plays every game.
I don't think that looking overmatched a couple times has anything to do with him being a rookie...I think it just makes him like any other dominant player. When they aren't dominant, people notice because it's not the norm.
