I see none of Pronger in Morin. His skating is much more fluid, but he doesn't dictate the game like Pronger did. That was what made Pronger great. Without that, you have nothing resembling Pronger.
Absolute best case scenario, you get a hybrid of angry Coburn and Tyler Myers. That's a hell of a combo, and I really think that could be his ceiling. His realistic projection though is something in between normal Coburn and angry Coburn. His low end potential is a Keaton Ellerby type. It's a wide range, but there's no denying the upside there. That doesn't mean he's anything like Pronger, though.
EDIT: Also, Pronger was a master of reading the game. Morin, from what I've seen, seems to be simply reacting to the play. He's going to have to fix that in order to be a top pairing guy.
