his physical play is strong
. His defense is what needs the most work. Also, he looks like he has room to fill out more physically.
I can't see him being NHL ready next season. But I said that about Skinner... so...
Actually, i read that he really needs to work on his physical play more than anything else, i heard that he's fairly weak on the boards, am i off base on this?
He's a guy who i really want the Oilers to target and maybe even over RNH if it comes down to choosing between the two but his apparent weak physical play might be a concern.
