Morin = Pronger Doppleganger
Watch the clips, his posture and skating style are so like Pronger it's scary.
Someone with some editing skill could no doubt put a couple clips together.
A huge, mobile, tough, talented kid like this is always worth the very slight risk. If you saw the photos from the Trial, he's got some muscle definition already too, and he's not 18 yet.
I think we drafted a gem, and many others in the hockey world agree.
