I hope he does well, but I'm not holding my breath.
I don't know if he played with Skinner but he was obv still productive without him, and if he was also able to keep pace this season in times without Landeskog, that's also a good thing.

I for one like that Holmgren is willing to take these chances with kids like this. With a dearth of 1st and 2nd round picks it's kind of a must. Homer has a decent eye for talent. Sooner or later he'll get a keeper or two in guys like this. I think they'll get a sniff at some point. We'll see.
