I'm hopeful, just not over the moon excited the way some are. All I can go on is a mediocre training camp and some firsthand commentary.
From the games i've watched he and laakso were the shut down line, he played smart defense he's good on the poke check. He can't lay a guy out but he isn't helpless, he is strong enough to separate guys from the puck. I don't get that criticism.

If anything i'd say his weakness would be his shot power, which other people seem to think the opposite for some reason. He has great aim but his shot needs to get stronger and that's easy to work on as he's still working to put on muscle
