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.
I am not judging his skill at this moment or even his playing its the attitude that has me concerned. P.K. came to the team with the mindset that he was going to go out there work hard and prove himself when he did make a mistake he was the first one to try and correct it, I don't see this from DeSousa. Maybe the kid was just having an off night but I sure hope that is not a sign of thing to come, I will be watching closely the next few games he plays to see.
