I just want to keep our expectations realistic.


I know it's normal, but given the circumstances and situation, I think he'll have every opportunity to succeed this season. Less pressure playing behind Tavares; playing with defensively responsible players in Bailey and Okposo; will have that big body doing the dirty work along the boards in KO.

All I'm saying is the opportunity for a productive rookie season is there. It all comes down to whether or not he feels he's ready. IMO, I think his confidence is pretty high right now, so I expect him to work his ass off attempting to make this team. If he eventually makes it, the potential to put up points is definitely there in year one.
