Part of me thinks that because of his size, he's going to be in the NHL and whoever his coach is going to be will use him in that shut down role exclusively and not bother trying to develop the offensive side of his game.
Might it then be advantageous that the Flyers already have shut-down Dman types coming out of their ... bench gates? Or would it point more to Holmgren and the boys taking a pass on Zadorov because he isn't what they perceive is a need (ie, PMD)? Or has this whole thread got me microassessing every little thing and forming opinions on players whom I haven't seen beyond poorly made "highlight" clips?
