He may have the athletic and physical abilities of a star, but he doesn't have the brains of one.
Unless they start awarding the Norris based solely on lofty potential and stop looking at actual results, I don't see him winning one.

That is of course ignoring the fact that the organization is attempting to mold him into the defenseman they want him to be instead of letting him be himself.
I think that will just make him worse.
the primary problem
