i don't think the kid is a lock to make the NHL, forget about him being our "best prospect". i will be watching him closely tonight.
Same here. Classic case of fans and media over-hyping a player and in turn hindering his development based on expectations.

No chance of him being in the NHL as a regular anytime soon. I was more stoked about Gryba, but he too didn't have the best season, although they both are making improvements as of late.

Still looking forward to seeing him play with the rest of the boys. But good lord man, put on some size!! He's got the frame of a rack of chips.
