Each game he seems to get a little more comfortable and a little better. It's scary to think how good he will be in a few years when he gets bigger and stronger. He is pretty tough to knock off the puck right now when he rushes it.
Every game he seems to make a few great plays. Last night he was great with the goal and assist and he also hit the cross bar with another great shot when he moved up in the slot. One of his best attributes is his vision, both passing and seeing the play develop. He also has a good ability to get the shot through from the point. It might not always be a rocket of a shot but he gets it through which is a talent that many of the flyers defensemen lack.
I have absolutely no doubt that he will definitely be an all star within a very short time. He is already our best offensive defensemen after 8 games in the NHL. Defensively will take some time but he has gotten better each night. When all is said and done he may end up the best flyer defensemen ever (no dissrespect to Howe).
