I don't think hockey IQ is the issue, i think it's the adjustment from being somewhat of a ROVER in the Q, to playing more systematically on D. He is very savvy offensively, making very subtle plays to buy an extra second. To me it's simply just an adjustment on reeling back his instinct to push forward always and figuring out to stay back. Finding that balance in his game is an adjustment that will only improve over playing more professional hockey games. After watching him very closely in camps, I've never questioned the IQ level.

Dude has the potential to be a BEAST.
