You can't coach/teach someone to have the kind of natural scoring presence Fraser has shown in the AHL since turning pro.

Having said that-- his skating is holding him back, and Boston is a tough roster to crack, glowing scouting report aside.

I come from the perspective of someone who was not all that impressed with him in the first 10 or so games I saw of him live last year. By mid-season I was a firm believer. Too many rocket one-timers from inside the circle to the back of the net, too many smart, industrious plays-- the little things that win hockey games at crunch time-- to ignore.

We'll see if it's enough for him to be an NHL player, but I think he just needs an extended opportunity to prove it. 10 minutes here and there probably won't get it done.
