And even then, scouts haven't seen enough of him because of the injury.
It seems like everyone gets giddy about prospects until it's a Leaf prospect, then its time for sober second thought.

Ryan Sproul is the next Shea Weber, Ryan Hamilton is the next Pronger, etc.

Leaf prospect? Number four defenseman, power play specialist sounds about right...
