Well when you are being drafted for your ability to create offence and you dont do it, people are going to wonder.
The you look at the ratio of PP pts to EV pts and compare to other high end draft eligible forwards and it also makes you wonder.
Do you not think the other top prospects dont face checking schemes devised by opposition coaches? or is RNH the only one?
Do you expect the tight checking to slack off once he gets to the NHL??
He may very well be the best player in his draft class, but then again maybe not - nobody really knows. How can these not be legitimate questions....my team isnt getting him so ive got no horse in this race he'll be long gone by #6
