I hope the kid exceeds expectations, but it does not look promising at all.
How much did you watch him play? My guess is not very much if at all. The guy is not an offense first winger. He has a sound two way game. His job on his line is defense first. The fact that he had such a good run at the end of the year is actually a big plus, not something to be dismissed.

Comparing him with Subban is ridiculous. First off Subban is an extremely talented offensive defenseman who plays a lot. One of the best in that regard in the OHL. Secondly he is their pp QB so when the Bulls score on the pp there is a very good chance that Suban is in on the deal. If he was 6 ft tall and 190lbs he`d be a high first round draft choice. BUt he is 5`9 and about 155lbs. Not exactly what you are looking for in an NHL defenseman.
