As an original Blues prospect (traded for Tarasenko) several of us have a healthy interest. I was pretty surprised he was traded, but haven't heard anything about him since then. From this thread it sounds like his defense is holding him back. If he having problems more with the speed of the NHL game, positioning? Is his strength adequate?
Well we've only had one game to see him play so far. He needs to get used to the speed of the game and make quicker decisions with the puck. His offensive instincts look as advertised. He also needs to work on his defensive positioning and how to play effectively in a Dave Tippett system.
