I wonder if he has a bit of Rejean Houle in him, a ggod forechecker, hard worker, great skater, good offensively but maybe not as good as expected.

I'm not ragging on the kid, I'm glad he's on the team, I'm just not sure what kind of player he'll be in 5 years. He'll be a good one, but 30 goals 40 assists good, or 15/15 and a terror on a checking line ?
I absolutely agree with this. Many people, including myself, have stressed about conifdence issues in he case... while he seems pretty at ease with Bonk and Johnson, I think it's still an issue for him. Look at last night's game; he works hard, scores a beauty... next three shifts, he tries Superman like plays (all failed)... I don't know what to think anymore, is it a lack of confidence or a lack of skills. Also happend against TO when he scored his first goal, tried all sorts of crazy moves.. all failed.

just a thought.
