I find it disappointing to read the negative comments on a 15 year old.
You can like him or not but to write about his weaknesses and say that he will not be drafted, kid and parents don't need to read that stuff.

These young players make sacrifices to play at this level. They need encouragement not comments that they will not succeed.
disappointing to read negative comments on a 15 to 16 year old....well at this age is when hockey at this level becomes a major part of their lives if that is the path they are taking and negative comments and positive are both going to be a big part of what they have to endure from now on....they are now getting looked at and being scouted for the QMJHL and us as scouts always have negative comments we tell players they have to work on things they are not good at and have to improve, rolls they will play with our team if we draft them and even rankings then are negative because if a kid is not ranked high in the draft im sure it is a let down to them...not like they are 8 and 11 years old now playing just for fun, these kids are 15 to 16 playing to make it now if they are playing this level.
