Morin is a Capital Boom or bust player, if he booms there's no denying the possibility of him becoming a player like Chara, it will be a long time project but it's as good of a possibility as anyone in recent memory. But there's also a risk that he completely busts, he progressed a lot from the beginning to the end of last season, if he keeps up with his progression and becomes a gym rat I can't see him not becoming a succesful top 4 at least.
I'd say 25% he never becomes an NHL regular, 15% a 5-6-7 D, 30% he becomes a top 4D mostly defensive minded, 20% he becomes a top pairing 25 minute a night two way Dman and I give him a 10% odds at becoming an elite defender (A la Chara or Pronger). That 10% is still a good enough number for him to be picked at 11.
I had Philly picking him in my mock and I believe it was the best fit for him.
