It's definitely the offensive ceiling that had him at 9, if you look at how some teams above us drafted -- they were looking for more point-producing D-men.
And good luck to them in their picks, but from where I stand...
even if Trouba doesn't end up with a huge offensive game at the pro level, as long as he keeps hitting, skating and defending the way he does, I'll be satisfied.
And if he DOES have significant offensive development... well then we're gonna have a gooooood time at games in a few years folks.
Definitely agree with this. I mean, with Buff and Enström on the team, we don't really have to worry about point producing. Even more so with Bogosians potential.
Not that I doubt that Trouba has good offensive potential, just saying that I won't be too sad if he doesn't reach it.
