I hope you're right, I just think we tend to over-hype this kid on the basis of being Sutter's WJC Captain. While I think Kyle's character and dedication will give him a decent shot at being a full time NHLer, I just don't think he has the skillset to be anything more than a 3rd line centre (at best a shutdown type player and PK guy). While team's need that kind of player, I just think we fans have higher or possibly unrealistic expectations of him.

Hopefully we'll have a better idea after a full season in Hamilton and hopefully I'm dead wrong.
