Those are very high expectations if people think he's going to be that good.

Also isn't Roy's freshman year the same age McDonald was in his sophmore year?
There's still a transition to the NCAA game from the USHL. Yes he's of Sophomore age. That doesn't take away from what he's doing right now. All I hear are reviews that say he's the best player on the ice when he plays. Will he be McDonald 2.0? Who knows. But McDonald didn't take off as a star right away either. Not sure if anyone expected him to be as good as he is.
