Don't want to get everyone's hope up or over inflate the hype machine, but there was an article from last year talking about him having "Toews like" leadership attributes.

At the rate we are going these days, we may be picking too high to take him. I honestly figure we are going to end up with a pick in the 5 - 8 range. Just my gut instinct.
Yeah, if we don't start to win on the road and/or our injury problems don't improve we very well could end up there.

At that stage we are talking about players that could fall to that spot such as Galchenyuk, Forsberg, Dumba, etc.
