It wasn't his fault the Leaf hype machine touted him as the next Ray Bourque, or that his injuries were never properly taken care of by team staff. It may have been his fault he let the hype get to his head, though. But what's a kid from the GTA to do?

He can skate and move the puck. And has proven not to look terrible when in a decent team structure. Is he the replacement for Lidstrom? Of course not. But if the deal is legit, it isn't much of a gamble, either.

They've had success with reclamation projects in the past.
