Will he be frustrated, will he retaliate or will he turn into Yashin & disappear?
From what I have seen so far, he seems to have an edge to his game & I'm hoping it will make him play even harder. Personally, I would like him to spend another yr in the SEL to get a little bigger, get a little more hungry, develop a mean streak & learn to work even harder on his game. Given him a spot to early could spoil him, let him wait & get hungrier for it. It won't hurt the Sens but could strengthen him mentally.
I don't know Zibby seems like he would be more likely to be the harasser than the victim lol.
