Hey guys i dont get to watch alot af WILD games i live in WILLIAMS LAKE BC and dont get to see them play unless its against the canucks.... so i alwasy seee them win hahahah..... but tell me about this kid seams like he could do somehthing...
I haven't seen much of him (just the games he's played with the Wild this year -- no minors or junior or anything), but here is what I see in him:
He's a HARD worker, especially lately. The first few games he looked a little out of place, but he's really come around. He skates his butt off every shift, which ineviteably puts him in a lot of good positions to get some points. But he seems to have some trouble finishing. He's a pretty good skater, but doesn't have blazing speed.
He seems to be a pretty good all around player. I don't see him evolving into a Sakic-like scorer, but if he keeps working and developing like he is now I could see him as a good third-liner or average/below-average second liner. I've heard consistency can be a drawback of his, though.
