He gets knocked off the puck far too easily, and just doesn't look like he belongs on the ice at the NHL level to me. I hope I'm wrong, but my gut says he's a Jody Gage career AHLer type player.
I think that's a bunch of bull. He's short, but he plays with a lot of intensity. He is tougher along the boards and less afraid to go into heavy traffic than a lot of guys much bigger than he is. I think you are expecting too much too fast from him. I think he will have a strong NHL career.
