He's an eyebrow actor, nothing more.

I am hoping that Dee & Drake go to Y/R, they need a new couple & business to compete with Victor & Jack, I can see Drake butting heads with Victor, he needs a strong actor like Drake to take him on.
Drake is a strong actor? lol Seriously, I just don't think there is any room for Drake and Deidre on Y&R. I wouldn't mind seeing Drake on GH or another soap, but Y&R needs to be able to write stories for the vets they have.
I think he's a strong actor. I've enjoyed him in strong scenes with Stefano, Tony, Victor, Bo, etc. through the years. I know he's dissed on alot, but I feel like there is something about him that plays really well off of others. I felt he was best when he first came on as Roman, and the early John years. He had such a natural human side and obvious warm caring heart. I think over the years, he played the character very soapy because of so much camp, and it worked for me in the campy stories, but there were times in more recent years it was a bit too much.
I really loved how he played new John at the beginning of the year, particularly with the strong Marlena that fought to get him back. It's just too bad the writing stagnated because I really wanted to see new John evolve into a blend with old John's heart, but less over the top romanticism, more independent grit for both of them.
I don't know enough about Y&R to know if I'd want him to go there or not. I'd like him to go somewhere that he's needed and will be used.
