Me too.

I think a large part (not all) of his exceptional status was due to him being developed like a 20 year old at 14. This isn't meant to be a knock on his ability, but at 15 the kids beard rivaled those of the guys on Duck Dynasty.

He's a good hockey player, but I don't agree with those who are using his exceptional status for a reason to have him #1. Needs to develop a lot more offensively, or he'd be very much a Chris Phillips type #1 pick.
