you still don't know him well

I must not know him that well, because I don't think he'd be a top 5 pick haha. I think he's a great young prospect, I love the defensive side of his game, I feel like he's strong enough off the puck to be in consideration for an NHL job sooner than a lot of people thought. But I don't know if the offense is close to being on par with some of the guys being talked about in that range of this years draft--and don't get me wrong, I value defense as much as the next guy, but I just don't know if he's a gamebreaker like I think one or two of the guys in this years draft could potentially be.

I do however think that after half a year, he's opened up a lot more eyes, and has a lot of GM's kicking themselves for not selecting him when they could have. And he's by far my favourite Sharks prospect.
