He was playing on the 4th line and got few shifts a game. No doubt he needs to get stronger and learn to stay on his feet in battles, plus work on his play and positioning in his own end without the puck, but he's going to be just fine. The kid has elite sniping skills and a big time shot from the slot area. Should be an exciting stretch run and playoff battle between Barrie, Belleville and Oshawa.
Who ever has been saying that is just blind or uneducated...

He's pretty much guaranteed to be an NHLer so that removes bust out of the equation... Really it's just a question of where he ends up between 1C-3C. If I was to stage a guess it be low-end 1C, high-end 2C tweener.
