His speed seems OK, nothing flamboyant but his first step acceleration does need a little work. Also, he is big. He is at least 6"1, but he did get knocked off the puck when going in the corner against Commodore a couple times during the game. A little disappointed that he did not use his incredible shot, as I do not even think he took one SOG. I do agree that little emphasis should be put on the game in evaluating his skill level, and I'm sure he was nervous. I look forward to see what he will do on Saturday against the Leafs.
So it's confirmed that he's playing against the Leafs?
Now I really have to see that game.
I'd still prefer he develop in the minors this season though.
