Maxwell has impressive offensive skills to go with his skating and speed but for me I want to see how he handles himself at the pro level. I think he's a really solid prospect for us, but he plays a passive style that I have to wonder how it will translate to the pros. Really want to see him in Hamilton next year. Certainly we have some very interesting prospects looking to turn pro next year with Maxwell, White, Weber and hopefully Pacioretty, then add Wyman and Trotter who will play their first full season in the ahl. I also look forward to seeing if Aubin can move up to Hamilton full time, after being so good in the Q and he's having a good year in the ECHL, but we need to see him do it in the AHL next.

If Maxwell turns out better then Pacioretty, all the better for us, cause I think very very highly of Pacioretty, not so much for his offensive skills, but for the way he plays.
