I was more than sure that Minnesota would have taken the local kid in Trouba at the draft. Trouba looks like a real deal.
His size isn't the problem as he looks like a tank on the ice. 5-11 may not be tall but he's got alot of mass packed into that frame, I would be scared get hit by him, considering this and his speed.
But hockey IQ, I agree, he needs to work on it. He plays a high energy game, but sometimes, he just needs to slow things down and read the play.
