POLL Question: What is Jake Virtanen’s Ceiling?

Jake Virtanen appears to be coming into his own. Despite limited minutes, his role with the Sedin twins has opened him up for some offensive success early in this season – but are fans raising their diminished expectations of the young Abbotsford native?
