I'm sure with experience and coaching he'll smooth these things out.

Now that he's getting more spotlight nationally, people will pick his game apart more and more. Nothing new, pretty standard for a kid who's in the spotlight 2 years before his draft year. But I hope everyone keeps in mind, that he JUST turned 16 lol.
This is exactly why 16 year olds dont make World Junior teams.

People dont realize that things like the Super Series, the Prospects Game and off summers really help young players get to the next level
