Again, I'm not saying anything other than I just have some weird feeling he won't live up to his potential.

Nothing to back it up, other than a really disappointing OHL season where it was originally expected that he could contend for a spot on the WJ team, and instead had a season full of injuries, 9-game suspensions, and poor play. Still, I really hope he can turn his game around with Kitchener this year. I still really think Puempel can reach his potential, just have a feeling right now that he won't.

If anything helps, it's that he'll get to play in Kitchener instead of the current OHL hell-hole that is the Peterborough Petes.
