I watched a lot of Lee as well. He did have a strange progression. But he made strides. There are a lot of NCAA players that look weak as upper classmen. At NoDak. He was used all the time. Some players pressing too much. With classes, mental fatigue can set in. Okposo as a soph was brutal, Wheeler never dominated college hockey. Goli himself was always pegged as great at O but not in his own end. They all found a way to have NHL success. Or at least at this point. Have played in the NHL.

Some D just take a little while to get going. Goli played 3 at the U and one in the AHL. Now this year. Lee played 2 at NoDak and one in the AHL. Now this year. Going head to head. Lee is still one year ahead of Goli's progression.
