Ivan's challenge was structure and knowing how to play his position. Adam seems to be the polar opposite where I think he will do all the right things to adjust to the next level (AHL or NHL). My hopes are that when we are asset managing him we make sure we maximize his potential.
I was thinking of posting something similar with regards to the parallel's between Telegin and Lowry coming to the end of their 19 year old seasons in junior.

Lowry's game definitely seems like it's better suited to pro hockey, but both were big strong men imposing their will physically on the other players.

I fully expect Lowry to transition better but it's by no means a guarantee.
