That's true, but equally silly. It's his first game of Pro anything, so for him to make some mistakes shouldn't be out of the realm of possibility. He's not Seth Jones, if Jones had looked like that concern would be more warranted because he's supposed to be a much more finished product (I don't think there's much debate there)

So he made some mistakes, but when you stop solely focusing on little things that can, and likely will, be work out with experience and maturity, you see a very nice young player.

Nurse skates very well, looks confident, smooth and most of all looks strong. Like bust you in the face, I'm going to make your life hell tonight strong. He looks like the kind of kid, if he brings consistency to his game, that could own faces on a nightly basis and be a difference maker.

Is Darnell Nurse there yet? Hell no, but he's on his way, WAY too earlier to write a kid like him off.
