Some ******* people on this site.
If you're a Sabres fan, In 6-7 years you'll be sick over this kid, wondering WHY he didn't end up half the player he "should" have been. The same signs were there with Viktor Kozlov and Nik Antropov.... big frames, good skaters with top skills, yet questions about dedication, intensity, work ethic and heart.

Notice those things were NEVER said about Malkin, Ovechkin, Kovalchuk, etc. There are warning signs but teams will always take a chance on super talent hoping they can get the players to "change" mentally. It rarely happens.
