Hopefully the NHL gets it **** together at some point. Some very exciting times ahead between Gally/Collberg/Beaulieu etc..., likely 5 top 75 picks in what could be a whale of a draft class, and of course the young guns in Pac/Price/Subban/Eller etc.
Yep, he isnt the most explosive but with the puck skills and arsenal of shots he has, he still can become an elite player in the NHL.. Forsberg wasnt an explosive skater either..
