I saw him play live this year. He is definitely a project but he certainly has some upside. For a big guy he skates reasonably well and he is quite strong. He's definitely not speedy and he is definitely not hockey smart in the sense that Tyutin, for example, seems to be but he's still very young.

Truth be told, when the Rangers snagged him they knew he'd be a gamble and aparently they're willing to wait it out.

I'm not the hugest Sather fan but it seems to me that he runs very little of the draft (MSG had a special on that and it seems Renney and Maloney (kinda scary in its own right) do the draft work) and there has been a concerted effort to draft size and power in the first rounds. Given that they play in the East one can't really blame them for doing that.
