I know it comes down to team needs but he will be a very special player
Raw talents, yes. But his decision making, from what I've seen in the tournament, looks pretty rough. If it's indicative of his actual hockey sense (which I have no idea of one way or the other) then my bet is he ends up like something along the lines of Phaneuf as a ceiling. That wouldn't be the worst thing in the world, but when you have options like Barkov kicking around in the same group, it's not necessarily ideal.
