For me I look for tools. Curtis has a lot. I know NHL scouts see this too. Could care less about these rankings, I'd love for my team to have a shot at him late 1st, but I don't see it.
PS. I'd take a goal over a 2nd assist any day.
Done 'pumping his tires' for now. People will figure it all out sooner or later.
To play devil's advocate: I understand some of the worries about his offense. His style of play isn't one that really equates to points.
However, outside finishing goals, his play is excellent with great energy, forechecking ability, and potential wreck havok on opposing play systems. Love that jump he has in his game.
