Push comes to shove, I think his game is going to struggle to adjust to the NHL game, just like his dad.
He's probably a little bigger than his dad, so he might have more to work with on the defensive side.
It's okay to speculate because we're fans, and that's what we do. But I wonder how much any of us have watched him to be able to analyze his game. I guess Junior championships (maybe). But even if we had watched every one of his shifts, he's only 18. Who can say anything for sure about his development over the next 4 or 5 years?
