lol What does the guy have to do to be a #1 pick in your eyes?
He is also really improving on his two way game, and he has a physical edge to his game too.
He just turned 17 in September... until a recent goal scoring slump, he was on pace for a goal per game (he can get back that pace quickly with a couple good games). He should make the World Junior team, and he put up 1G 3A against an older, almost world junior russian squad.
I don`t see where he doesn`t measure up to the other guys you mention. When he is 21-22, he will be an absolute force in the NHL.
