I remember our 1996 first rounder Jeff Brown being touted the same way, and he failed to even cme close making the NHL. That is more common than people realize for late picks.

Skjei haas a 50-50 shot of making the NHL, and if he makes it is 50-50 to be top-4 as opposed to the bottom pairing.

I like the pick, but lets be realistic about it until he shows further progress. There is a reason 27 teams passed on him, and he hasn't played one second since then to prove those GMs wrong.
