It isn't that simple though. There is no doubt that he is by far the best player on his team, and can dominate games. Part of that comes down to his size, his ability to use it effectively and the fact he can dominate games with it. He won't have that size advantage at the next level and that isn't an insignificant thing.
Adjustments will have to be made in his game, and that will tell us how effective he is going to be. It isn't about knocking Jaškin, who I think is a great prospect, but it is about keeping expectations realistic.
