Saad has shown flashes of brilliant play, that is the gist of it. Plenty of players have had bad years and were called lazy and whatever else you want to label an 18 yr old as yet still gone on to be players.

And I can most certainly question anyone who brings up that regressed skating quote. How can anyone not understand that the injury WAS the 'oddly enough' part of the equation ?

I feel I must add, 'this is not an endorsement for Saad as our 1st round pick'.
Aren't scouts supposed to be informed about an injury, especially a player playing through one? From what I've heard these kids are told that playing through a nagging injury won't hurt draft status and that a scout would know this.

For a scout to use such strong language as "regressed" describing the kid's skating ability without acknowledging and/or knowing that he's nursing a groin injury is pretty brash, no? Quite confusing if you ask me.
