Saw some of the Wild game the other night and I was MIGHTILY impressed with this kid. So much so that, even as a Pens' fan with our defensive depth' I was very jealous.


This kid can skate like the wind, seems to have tremendous instincts, poise and confidence; and a bit more inherent offensive uspdie/awareness than he was given credit for at the time of the draft.


I'm not sure if he'll ever produce the kind of offense that a guy like, say, Dimitry Kulikov will, but in all other aspects of the game, he appears to have similar kind of potential overall. Perhaps a rich man's Paul Martin? (much better skater, too)
