Few downsides to Cousins: he's a bit on the small side and hasn't really filled out yet, his skating needs work (not speed he's got that more so his mechanics) but that's improved and lastly his play in his own zone. He is working really hard under the defensive minded Murray in ADK to fix this though and has already shown improvements.

For some reason many don't think his offensive game will translate to the NHL but I'm not one of them. I see him as a 40pt agitating top 9 winger if he stays with the organization. Notice I said winger as there really is no room for him at center here.

Also I want to point out that the off ice issues I'm pretty sure occurred after he was drafted so I don't see how that had any barring on him being a 3rd rounder. I see him challenging for a roster spot within two years.
