His offensive game isn't there yet, but that's minor details. Physically nature, smart, and good defensively. He's ready.
as an isles fan, this is the main reason i'd like to see him stay in juniors for this year and even next. i think he has a lot of untapped potential on the offensive side of things which we saw glimpses of tonight. it's substantially tougher, imo, for young d-men, particularly those who are more defensively inclined, to develop their offensive game in the nhl. also, although he's got a big frame, he still looks like a kid. he's still got a lot of filling out to do.
