Though I don't believe he'll overall by that physical, he did distribute some bodychecks and is not afraid in going where it hurts the most. Mind you, Latendresse was not that physical in junior and he had to adapt his game. When Quailer will be 210lbs or something and feel at ease with his body, chances are he'll adapt his game as well. So it's tough to say right now.

That's a good comparison, don't think he has his offensive IQ but drives the net and knows where to go to score. Let just say that it would be his highest ceiling possible. Don't think he'll reach it though. But as far as wanting to explain how tall, offensive but not physical the guy can be, it is a good comparison. Blake Wheeler could be another one.

And that's another really good comparison. So the guy could go from Shean Donovan to Jeff Carter.......
