He's doing what we expect. It's Tarasenko who was amazing, doing so well against players much older and more developed than he was 3 and 3 years ago, as a teenager.

Jaskin should have a great season in The Q this year, and be a reasonably highly-rated forward prospect. I'm not worried about him being a bust. I think he's got the tools to be an NHL forward. It just depends upon how much he wants it, as to how hard he works for it.
The biggest issue with Jaškin was his attitude back home. Glad to see that he has had a good start, hopefully there were other issues last season and that won't be a problem again.
