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.
He's going to have to develop some generational hockey sense if he wants to ever get to that level. I think he is what he is. He's a big mobile guy who's defensive game is already solid, but they're hoping his offensive game develops. If that happens, he can become a top pairing guy, but to say he's a Pronger doppleganger is crazy.
The guy selected at number four this year should be the guy that garners those comparisons.
