I'm worried about his skating, but that doesn't mean he can't improve and that ppl should be giving up on him yet.

I preach the same thing over and over with prospects... Be patient.

Unless its Morrow, because he is sick.

Problems only arise when people take projections as gospel. He's talented enough to get a real shot, but he's young and inexperienced enough that he could go either way.
Well, if he plays decent, there aren't any good fwd prospects he will have to leap frog to get a shot. Lets be honest. It's Tangradi, who will be with the big club, and BB. That's it.

Who knows how BB will mesh with pro players. I thought King was a below avg AHLer, then he lit it up for LA.

Despres looks a lot better in the NHL than the A. Sometimes playing with NHLers makes your job easier and things just click for you.
