At this point, being an exceptional skater and being one of the toughest prospects out there is about as much upside as youre going to get
These rankings will change next year, but as of now, guys like Raedeke, Nicastro and even Nestrasil look to have higher upside an are have developed more than McKee. Yeah he might be able to skate and he seems to have a great attitude, but what seems to be missing is those essential skills to become an NHL player (even a fringe player). He said himself, he wants to work on that and not be and enforcer. I rate other players before an enforcer. But if McKee shows he can improve in other areas of his game, then I'll be the first to vote for him ahead of the other guys on this list.
