I think Skjei projects more as a solid third pairing guy. That's not a knock on him, it's just a result of his steady, but not terribly spectacular abilities.
With that said, kids going into college can be all over the map.
Some kids develop parts of their game that you never expect, others never tap into their abilities, some do well, but level off quicker.
Projecting teenage players is like shooting a rifle in a hurricane. Even if you're an elite talent, you're going to miss your targets from time to time.
(assuming he plays the left side) that definitely isn't a knock considering he'd be on the 3rd pair behind the likes of mcdonagh, staal, del zotto and erixon.
