My point being, of those players who made it, at least the ones he pointed out, quite a few were undersized. No surprise there, not many of them make it. My main point was, and still is; the kid has quite a bit of offensive talent and he knows where to go to score goals and set up plays. He skates very well and is elusive with and without the puck. For nothing more than an ELC, I see no risk.
I'm not trying to make the argument that we shouldn't sign him. I'm just supporting the idea that he's a long shot to ever earn more than a cup of coffee in the NHL.
Edit: And I guess people missed it, but I posted a tweet on the prior page that indicates that carolina is looking to sign him. So whether or not we want to sign him may soon become moot.
