His success in the NHL depends on his use on the PP, and how Hartley will coach the team. Under the Sutter regime he would have been out of place.
Yes Calgary desperately needs more high end skill in the top 6. But at the same time, with Iginla eventually on the way out. They risk losing their edge.
He is very much a top 6 or bust player. I never doubted the kids skill. It is whether he can transition into the NHL.
No s/h*t ! There are many reasons why any prospect will not make the NHL
My response was to DogsFan post where his size was the only thing he pointed out and then he questioned everyone who did the same thing on the flip side of the arguement.
