What makes Cowen unique is that he is a very good skater for his size, a rare trait in big physical d-men. He isn't a black hole offensively, but he isn't great either, yet.
Well exactly. He's just tools at this point, hasn't proven anything. Only done a meh job in extremely sheltered minutes. If it's all tools and potential that everyone's so enamoured with, why isn't there this kind if frenzied lust for someone like Nikita Zadorov? Same size, skating, some but limited offensive upside, great shutdown ability, smarts, and hasn't proven anything in the NHL. I just don't understand how people can seriously think he's worth more than $3M already.
