Granted, that's not very hard.
Does anyone think he's improving his stock? Any chance he's squeaking up to maybe a #2 instead of a #3-4 guy?
In my own opinion, I think he'll really be a player once he can figure out how to play both offense and defense in one game. He can do both really well, but somehow seems unable to do both at the same time.
What's funny was this summer I was one of the few who was praising him and saying he's the best defensmen in the Q coming into this season and was one of the few putting his name in the underrated prospect thread. I guess things turned out just fine
Now all I have to do is convince you guys that he's top 5 D in Canada
since people continue to exclude him from the WJC team when imo he's the 3rd best D-man right now behind Hamilton and Murray.
