I think that's his
upside. He's undersized and lacking top-end skill. He usually plays hard and is pretty damn annoying to play against from what I've seen and read. That's only going to take him so far though.
Worst case, he's a 3rd line energy guy in the AHL than can score some points. There are very few players in the system who you can reasonably say, at minimum, will have an NHL career. I honestly can't fathom how anyone that has followed McColgan and his flat development path can say he's a sure bet to have an NHL career in any capacity.
What makes him any different than, say, Alex Bourret? At least with him you saw some career progression in his time in junior hockey. McColgan is just kinda there. He's not much different of a player than he was 3 years ago. I always look for development in prospects, and I don't really see any with McColgan.
He fell to round five for a reason: he never got any better. And he still hasn't.
It's just pain.
