Being a perceived steal in the draft always helps with fans loving you as well.

thx for answers
He honestly didn't have the greatest camp. He looked really good, but like there were a few aspects to his game that needed work. And I'm gonna be honest the WHL won't smooth them out. He's skating circles against his opposition and isn't really presented with the challenges he'll face in the NHL. So I don't think his time in Medicine Hat is really helping him grow, and he may see time next year in Syracuse. Though it is possible that we run a Etem-Holland-Palmieri line next year.

Anyone know how many games are in a WHL season? I think it's 72 right?
