Last time I checked he barely got drafted, and fell from "cant miss" to "bust" in less than 2 years.

All I am saying is that their is sometimes way too much about certain prospects because of unique situations.
Good example. I think that is why Hockey Canada has such an exhaustive program to vet ES candidates. It is one thing to be "physicall ready" in most eyes, but maturity and development are not linear. Rushing kids too quickly can ruin them.
