Kid has great offensive instincts, size, and mobility, but needs to work on his positioning and gap control. He has a good shot from the point and can log 20 minutes a night on the second pairing. I think what he needs most is a steady partner that he can grow with. Carolina can't get their defense straight. Not a great environment, IMO.

Personally, I feel like he could rebound with a new team. Similar to the way Stralman turned his game around after being cut from a tryout by the Devils. If you buy low on these kids, sometimes you are rewarded with great results. We may be seeing that with Brassard and Moore, and we could see the same with McBain.
