I thought he was pretty good in the Junior Tourney... He was involved in the play and even when he didn't get any points he was a factor in us putting the puck in the net.

Just because he might not be a future first liner doesn't mean he's a bust. He was taken 18th overall, we should be happy if he's a legit 2nd liner. Nothing wrong with that. A 3rd liner is fine too btw.

Exactly. All you can do is look at what an average 18th overall pick does in the NHL. If you consistently exceed the average (which we seem to be doing) then you're doing well.
