I think the pressure may have got to him and he was trying to do to much, when a stay at home defenceman needs to keep his game simple.
I hope he works out in Philly where he will be under (slightly) less pressure to live up to his draft position. Always liked Luke.
Could have been worse, we could have drafted MPS which half of this forum wanted on draft day.
I think you mean Filatov and you never how things would have worked out for him in Toronto
