On 98.5, I heard a scout saying that he did improved tremendously his skating in the second half of the season.
He does have very big upper body size and if he can bring his leg with similar strength, he will have all the physical skills to be a nhl power forward.

According to reports, he has very good work ethics and low body fat.

McCarron was a top pick by Knights and Western Michigan.
The fact that both were trying so hard to have him is giving me a lot of hopes. Hunter and Murray are both good judges of talents.

He is already 237 lbs.
More muscles in his legs could bring him to nearly 250.
There are 5 players in the league weighting 250 and more: Scott, Byfuglien, Chara, Yonkman and McIntyre.
We are dealing in a rare category and few examples are available.
Yup, and we also have tall/huge J.Tinordi .
So, sooner than later we may have one of the tallest/biggest dmen in the NHL in our lineup, and then...one of the tallest/biggest power forwards in the NHL in our lineup. We just have to wait at least 2 yrs to 2 yrs and a 1/2 (or more?).

Maybe (just maybe) McCarron takes the same development route as J.Tinordi. Tinordi had a slow start but got better (after a slow start to his development) and then his development pace got better and better and now it looks like he has a lot of potential.
I expect the same thing for McCarron.

Can't wait to see how he does this year and next season as well with London.

Go McCarron Go!!
