Was a late projected first rounder. Now should no one leave early, he may be asked to play another year else where.
True, EJ didn't get thrust into the limelight until after his great performance in the WJC. I was surprised about Skille, too, but I'm glad he's gone because you could tell his heart wasn't in Madison...kinda like KO this year. I agree, some guys it is hard to tell but with guys like Turris and Toews you should be ready to cut your losses after a short stint.
