Sadly I think you are right . This is why I make the Chimera comparison . JC is a physical beast who skates like the wind isn't the smartest or most skilled player . He does do well at PK and stealing pucks and creating chances, stretching defenses and going hard to the net . He wasn't a first rounder but possess a similar frame and stride as our CK . I think CK has a better quicker release on his shot . If CK turnns into a serviceable player than its a victory but the 30-30 plus upside as of now is looking really bad .
