He has great speed, plays great in his own end, taking a hit to make a play, right now he's doing ALL the little things right and that's fine right now with how much scoring we have. That said, once he gets his first goal, sky's the limit with this kid.
Honestly, if he continues to develop, I would compare him to Hossa.
Just asking, what was everyone's reactions when we drafted Saad?
I remember I absolutely did not want him in the first round. His game had fallen off in the 2nd half of that year (turns out it was a groin, eh?). But when we picked him at #43 I was ecstatic...that' s a gamble well worth taking. As I recall from the draft GDT we had going, everyone liked that pick.
