Gotta give the guy some credit here. Might not make the NHL, but to say he doesnt have any offensive is plain false. Thats his whole game which, if his defensive play was just a spec better he would be in the NHL. But hence its not so he isnt.

Honestly, I expect him to be one of the ones that fights for that last spot in the top 9.
I never said he doesn't have any offensive ability, I just said I don't see it translating much at the NHL level.

His lack of size & his skating (even though he's improved it a lot) are still concerns for the next level.

I see Raffl, Straka, Akeson & McGinn fighting for the last spot with Noebels as a dark horse. I have to give Raffl the edge out of all them based of what the Flyers have been saying about him.
