But, if he grows up and picks up his intensity, he could make it...and it would be a steal of a bargain for the B's.
Scouts said the same things about Adam Oates back in the day. And Mark Recchi.

Can't teach Griffith's high-end hockey sense and superior reflexes & hand-eye coordination.

He's going to be a player. Maybe not Hall of Fame caliber like those two, but I bet he makes it.
