He might, or he might not. If he doesn't, it still doesn't sway my opinion of which defenseman I would prefer. Kwiet had a good shot but was more of a power play specialist than anything else. You never saw him out there against top lines in a defensive role, and his minutes were carefully selected for sure. Don't get me wrong, choosing Posa over Kwiet was very close (Duininck wasn't) but if you're going to be honest Kwiet was a bit of a pylon in his own end. He had the size and shot to get a minor pro deal, good on him. So did Blake Parlett who you've slagged as useless in the past, so I don't know much of a talent indicator that is. Posa probably could play in the east coast and would have an opportunity, for chuckles take a look at some of the former OHL flotsam making a living in that league some time. He seems like the sort of kid who'd get on with his education rather than waste his education package in the pursuit of a dubious pro career.
