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.
I'll say the same thing here that I said in the Hagg thread since you posted it there too.
Morin for his size, skating, and intelligence might be a better player than Lauridsen already.
Honestly, he's as easy bet to become a bottom pairing SDD. However, we should want and expect at lot more from him than that.
Either way, your 25% that he never becomes an NHL regular is pretty pointless and incorrect.
