You look at him and is quite clear that he once dominated his league. Thing is often those guys, happened to have peaker earlier than the others. Or have the necessary qualities to succeed in easier leagues and not on the tougher ones. And then comes the character of some players who don't want to make the sacrifices and so on....Reason why being a scout is so damn hard.

Though as you know already...he might do wonders. We never know. He is at a PPG as a junior. I just don't expect it buy hey...wouldn't be the first time I'm wrong.
For sure, I didn't mean that I didn't see how he could be a grinder. It's just that I was a goalie and he was just such an offensive phenom when we were kids- it kind of ends up putting the pure offensive threats into perspective.
