Sounds a lot like a hugely successful defenseman already playing in the NHL. Dustin Byfuglien has been plagued by these sort of scouting reports throughout his entire career - right from his first time on the ice in the WHL. He's turned out just fine.

Granted, one success story doesn't make up for what is surely a ridiculous amount of failures, however, don't write him off just yet.
