Like you, I love the work ethic of the kid.
You know how this place works, anything that isn't NHL caliber at the draft is a negative. He needed a bit of work, I think it was mentioned as one thing he had really improved on in his draft year over the previous year which would indicate it wasn't always good. Sounds as if it is far improved now though. Which is one thing I've noticed with him, they talked about how quick of a learner he was and I think if they ask him to work on something he does it to the extreme.

Interesting too that he wasn't worried about bulking up, knew he'd get there naturally and didn't make it an issue.
