Just a guess, but after his performance in the Quebec League Playoffs, I can imagine a team using a late-round pick to take a chance on him. But he has to become stronger on his skates or he'll be pushed around far too much in the NHL.
I guess only time will tell, but his progression from #rd line to first and his turning it up in the playoffs may be a sign of this kid's determination, which may help him improve or overcome the deficiencies that you mentioned. I thank you for adding to the thread. I enjoyed your feedback. Anyone else care to add?
