Camp is no excuse . The guy is a gym rat and his physique shows it . Don't flame me but I'm not convinced of his hockey game . In open hockey where no one defends and it's breakaways and all offense I bet he's awesome . In WJC he was good in the slot and PP and that kind of hockey in general. in college same thing good PP player great if he got behind a Defense and went one on one . He needs to get better at carrying th puck , retrieving th puck , moving his feet . Hitting people, cycling all things about the NHL game where everyone else is pretty big and fast .
He shoots well , he looks good off th rush . His play in traffic or otherwise " actual hockey " looks contrived , confused , constipated .
I think he will get there at some point to some level of NHL compete t player but I'm leaning towards a Jason Chimera not a James Neal or Erik Cole
