Only two negatives are
1) He doesn't lay a lot of checks
2) His faceoff %.

That being said, how often do players like Kopitar and Toews lay huge checks? The fact that I see those two points as his only downsides just emphasizes (in my eyes) how good he is for a 18 year old. Most importantly, he isn't a liability defensively, which will play in his favor.

Seems to be more free with BGally & Prust. Hes doing his thing. Showed flashes of brilliance once, on the right wing, stickhandeling around 3-4 players in the neutral zone and getting the puck to BGally down the boards. I think if you keep him, his confidence will improve with time. He is more than capable of playing in the NHL as he isn't a defensive risk, and will progressively gain more offensive confidence on the puck with more gametime.
