It is called proper development. Canucks need to bring the young kids along properly and develop their games. Due to where we drafted we drafted a lot of projects that had raw talent. Defencemen need time time to play and I would rather have him play 15 to 20 minutes on the farm then the 8 or so minutes he would get on the current defencive line we have. There is one scouting report that came out earlier, where it talked about his booming shot, but made clear he had other aspects to his game that he needed to work on, such as how he plays away from the puck and how he sees the ice. I think he could be a heck of a steal in the 5th round, if the canuck do not rush him and coach him correctly
