He's big, he's skilled, he's everything. If he were Canadian/American I think he'd easily be a top-5 pick.
Like I said earlier, I think he goes 15-20 range. He looks like one of those players who will need to add another element to his game in order to dominate anything more than a junior level.
I bet Tampa scoops him up if they have a pick in that range.
