I can't speak for all Hurricanes fans, but I am neither higher nor lower on him than I was when the Canes drafted him. I've always viewed him as a high risk / high reward pick. Because of his size, I have always had concerns that he could become a regular NHL player, but if he can, because of his skill, he could be fantastic.

I don't put much stock in WJC where guys from different teams are thrown together after a few camps and playing against other teams that are in a similar boat. Dougie Hamilton looked terrible in the WJC this year. I still think as highly of him that I did before the WJC as I'm sure Bruins fans do.
