I think Josi will surprise a lot of people in training camp. I saw this kid play in Switzerland and there was never a more talented d-man in the Swiss League at the tender age of 17 (!) who dominated games like he did.
Nashville did the right thing with Josi last season. Giving him time to adapt and learn the NA hockey in Milwaukee. Josi isn't a player that dominates physically, but with his smarts, positioning and skating the puck up the ice. Adjusting and fine tuning his strengths to NA hockey needs some time, but it will pay big dividends. There's a reason why the coaches in Milwaukee said that Josi is the most talented d-man they ever coached during their time in Milwaukee.
Time will tell, but I would not bet against this kid for a spot on Nashville's blueline next season.
