Yeah, wasn't a terribly huge fan of him and still am not the biggest one. But that doesn't mean that he's not a key player to watch this year, which he is.

Can I get your thoughts on him?
Needs to work on his skating, positioning and discipline. Has some other good tools, like size, physicality and shot, but is still a pretty raw player. I don't think he should have been a 1st round pick.

One game he will get 3 points and look fantastic and the next he will take 4 cheap minor penalties that kills the team. If he puts that behind him he will be a huge asset in any run for the cup.

And a nice list as usual, but I think you are selling the BC div rather short and I understand you are from the prairies but...? 2 players on the entire list from BC.
I'm not selling anything short. This isn't a shot against the BC division. It's just a list of players I am looking forward to watching/following this season.

That's not me saying the BC division is weak or doesn't have any talent.
