Zadorov is possibly my favourite player from this draft.
I do agree with some scouts in that it looks like there's not a whole ton of offensive upside in him, but he's just soooooo good defensively. Smart and the level of agility he shows for a big man is really surprising.
He's not at all a thug like Pedan or Valabik. This kid can play the game, it is nice to see him drop the mitts though.

I think sending him back will help develop the offesnive game he's missing. Defensively I think he'll be ready for the NHL.
