Often what it takes is extra mass and coaching to mould a player into a true power forward. Staying with comparisons to our team, Eller was seen as a softer play maker during his development. If you look at where he is now, he's surely tapped into his physical side. I just think there's big potential there.
For sure there is potential, never said there was none. He's just not my type of pick at 15. There's much better players. The two Q guys have been hyped to a certain point where I don't really know why... Picking him 15th would means you pick him ahead of guys like Mackinnon, Jones, Drouin, Barkov, Nichuskin, Nurse, Monahan, Lindholm, Shinkaruk Pulock, Ristolainen, Zadorov, Zykov, Erne, Domi, Morrissey, Wennberg, Hagg, Lazar and Mueller. Seems like pretty good company, no ?
