By all accounts he is talented, though. Talking to some knowledgeable people about his game thus far in the playoffs, and they're really impressed. The draft is all about projecting to the next level, not about what a player is right now.

That is not to say you ignore things like intangibles, but they should be used a supplement.
Now that's a whole can of worms that I really don't have the time nor the effort to get into. If this is really true you should let some NHL teams know. I like to go off of live viewings and/or talking to people who's opinions I trust.

Just saying
Milan Lucic, 2nd round pick, .306 PPG in his draft year .
