My #1 least favorite trait is a player who doesn't care or has a lack of drive.
Every 3rd rounder has red flags and if some have fewer than him their upside is lower. As I said, lots of people want to prove how passionate they are and that's a lack of compete is the worst thing ever. Don't get me wrong, if he's lazy at the NHL level he'll probably bust, but he's 18, not 25. He's got great upside. In the 3rd round he's worth the risk. Much better than getting a Lee Felardau (spelling?).
