+ Doesn't shy from contact despite his size. If he gets knocked down, he's back up in half a second and ready to fight for the puck again. Really looks like a fearless player.

- Size, but that's natural when you enter the league at 16. I think he's listed at 5'10 and 152 pounds(!), so he has a lot of muscle to build up. But it's probably better to wait a bit and develop strength a bit later so you don't lose mobility.

I don't really remember his playmaking abilities.
True, he can add muscle later, that is still something he will need to do. I know other people had difference preferences, but for me, I would be scared silly using a first round pick of a small AND weak player. Obviously, some other posters really like his skillset, but for me, those lack of physical traits scare me.
