Like i said before, I've watched him about 30ish times or so throughout his career. And i just watched the Canadians camp on youtube. He needs TONS of work. Skating, Puck control, Speed, Weight loss, Feet balance (Fighting) and just fighting period. Is weight takes over his skating ability and speed, which makes him very slow. His puck controlling is very bad. He also needs to lose 10-15 pounds to get quicker.

But he is good along the boards, and in front of the net.

Skating 2/5
Hands 1/5
Speed 2/5
Shot 3/5
Strength 4/5
Fighting Ability 3/5
Size (Height, Weight) 4/5 (Needs to lose weight)

Overall: 4/10 right now.

NHL ready prediction: If he doesn't work on his skating ability, Speed, Puck control, Weight loss. He will luckily make his debut in 5-7 years. IF he does work good on those things and brings them up a notch:3-4 years.

Comparable: Dustin Penner.

Also if he doesn't work on those things, Canadian fans are going to be very made on this pick. But im trying to explain to them that don't think this kid will be ready in 2 years, and don't think he's a 30+ Goal scorer.

Another thing is could he be like an Anthony Stewart? Go high in the draft due to size. And never really make the NHL?
