It's probably has been said already, didn't read the whole thread....but I'm going with a misunderstood flop. Will clearly never achieve the potential they thought he had. Clearly not worth of a 4th overall pick, surely on pure talent, clearly not on dedication and heart.
Yet, clearly, it's obvious the kid lacks the confidence he needs to be more effective. When he keeps fumbling the puck like he does, it's a sign. But I clearly see the same type of path Lats was before he was traded. I don't believe both guys are hitting machines, yet, it seems as they are asked to do so when it's not their game. So that's my "misunderstood" part....but while there's a lot of blame on his very own shoulders, I hate the "You make a mistake, you sit for the rest of the game" syndrom....Tough to get that confidence back.
