We didnt draft Tavares, Yakupov, or Hall. We got guys with obvious skill and extreme talent that also have areas of concern. Let them develop and take up to 5 years to be what they could be.

The truth is we don't have an NHL team that is worthy of much hype so all we can do is hope and argue about the future.

For the record, I think Kadri tops out as a 65 pt 2nd line center. That'd be great, IMO.
Only 4-3 forward prospects after top four I believe have beaten the odds after being passed by several GMs. In Ryan O' Reilly, Marcus Johannson and Kyle Clifford of the top of my head.

As for the Defensemen I think Kullikov and OEL are the ones that have truly made impacts where we can be like wow.

So he is fine, he has skill that are god's gift if he fixes the other aspects of the game, he'll be just fine.
