Much too early to make any judgement or decision on him. I like his skating and passing ability. The rule of thumb in the OHL is not to judge a rookie in his first half of the season. I remember a rookie defenceman a few years ago who made mistakes as a rookie, PK something.
Relax give the kid a chance as he has a huge upside.
All the kid needs is a chance to play. I don't think 3 or 4 shifts a game when he dresses is a real chance. George needs to get rid of one older d-man for some offensive help and move the kid into the lineup permanently.
