This is the company line that has been parroted in the last few days because, I guess, with no hockey left to watch, people have to start looking for flaws. If we pass on a big, gritty RH centre who can score because "he might have topped out already", that's just dumb on so many levels. He's still a concensus top-15 pick according to virtually every scouting service I've looked at so far...barring some dramatic development in the next 11 days, I don't see any reason that would change.
