He should have read that play much better and backed off.
Stuff like this is why I have him 6th in my prospect rankings and am totally willing to ship him off to anywhere willing to overpay for his skillset.

That being said, I do expect him to minimize these kinds of mistakes with development and still have 100% faith in him being an effective #4. I just think that's where he ends up, while guys like Pysyk, Foligno and Girgensons (Catenacci too, to a lesser extent) have the abilities to really transcend their limitations (all of which just happen to be pure offense, rather than footspeed or IQ).
