I don't want anyone with effort issues. The Sharks haven't turned one around yet. The org is not suited to instilling motivation. Part of it is that they rush prospects, giving them their payday too soon.

Effort issue draftees:
Kaspar
Bernier
Seto
Wishart

It is very typical for big players to have effort issues because they can dominate with size alone when playing in junior or equivalent. It only becomes a problem when they face stiffer competition and by then it is too late to develop the work habits.
