And with the chemistry he's already shown with Eberle, I think 12+ goals 50+ points is within reach. He's got such a unique ability at the point, you can tell he's really aiming his wrist shots from there, trying to score, not just trying to get pucks through. One of the few guys I've seen do that on a consistent basis.
He's got a lot of Karlsson in his game, but his skating and vision aren't at the same level. But he is a good amount bigger. He should be a pretty consistent 15g+ 55p+ defenseman with a solid 2 way game once he hits his prime.
I missed it in your post, is he top 5 or top 10 elite NHL right now.
That's the question in response to your OP in which you stated that he was NHL elite.
We know that he is AHL and NCAA elite but nowhere else have I seen him described as NHL elite except in your OP.
