The #1 reason I think he wasn't signed/drafted is that with his size, it will be very difficult for him to play his game at his size. 5'9" is probably a stretch, he is closer to 5'7". So far he has proven that he can play against men in the AHL and his game translates, but that is far different than playing against NHL defensemen. I highly doubt he ever makes the NHL as a regular, but he should be a good AHL scorer for years to come.
Thanks henchman. Heres to hoping he turns into a Gerbe-esque player down the road (if he stays with the Avs, of course).
