Ghost will have the ability to bring the puck into the zone and actually make something happen. Of course we will go through growing pains, but I really feel he has some big potential.
I totally agree. He is an amazing skater, and he has a wicked shot. I am convinced he would be one of our better defenseman if he joined the team right now.
From watching several of his games it is obvious he is a better player when he is playing with a shoot first mentality. That 11 shot game he had was simply incredible. It is probably a pipe dream to think he could become as good as Erik Karlsson, or at least on his level, but I would not put that totally out of the question. Every game I see him play I keep getting more convinced that he will be a great defenseman for us.
