Some interesting posts from people on here on Steven Anthony (this is from 2006):

Everytime he is out there he creates something and he just makes you take notice.

Nova Scotia isn't a weak Midget league anymore, it is a pretty good development league now, Sidney Crosby, James Sheppard, Ryan Hillier, Brad Marchand, Colin White, etc have all came from there.

He has size, speed and strength, and top end skills to boot.

He scored a beauty where he took a bad pass off the skate and put it top shelf in 1 motion. You dont see that at the AAA level but it looked effortless to him.

Is he as good as Crosby? No. But he is a damn good player.

Also the Subways coach said he reminds him of a more skilled, speedier James Sheppard.
And from 2009:

(apparently he was stuck in a 3rd/4th line role but was later on put in a scoring role and exploded).

Btween the fact that he was waiting in the wings, and that we got a good return, it makes the loss of Dido that much easier. Wish I could see an icetime chart to see the upgrade in time since Chris left, but either way, he is producing more. Unfortunately, I've yet to have a chance to see him play since Dido left.

Very good vision for a 17 year old, actually makes passes on the tape. Horrible on faceoffs, doesn't take the body all that often but will go to the front of the net and compete in the corners. Good offensive awareness, knows where the puck will end up, average shot right now. Great size already, 6`2 205. Very good skater for his size.
