Haven't had time to watch a huge amount of games. But most of his plays are more difficult to pull off against pros, they're created by being much more skilled than his opposition, which is way tougher to do in the NHL than in a juniors league. I don't see him or anyone dangling around a whole team often at the pro level.

Most of the guys who are able to play an effective finesse game in the NHL are either superstars or atleast elite first liners, whereas those who don't are useless to below average for their position. Whereas the other prospects have a higher floor, and a similar ceiling.
