I've been watching a fair bit of Norway in these WC's and past international tournaments, and am always impressed by Holos. He is a good skater and has a very good shot. But his lack of physicality is what prevents him from making the step to the NHL. But he has good size. I do believe at this point in time he is a better or equal player than Elliot and Barrie, two players who also suffer from a lack of physicality in their play, but are smaller. However, the Avs have clearly shown a commitment to those two (and perhaps rightfully so, as they are younger and have a higher upside), and with Siemens possibly coming up, I don't see a place for him on this team even though I'd like to see him get another chance.

I do see him playing in the NHL at some point again, just not for the Avs.
