I like Harper -- but I have doubts about him ever breaking into the NHL.
I hope everyone by now realizes it was a joke...
Harper does not have NHL potential. He did (theoretically) for like a summer when he was another longshot boom/bust after Holmgren signed him. When he played against others in camp, it was fairly clear he did not have the talent for NHL play.

Yeah, it was kind of obvious, but I still like the kid. I was just throwing in my opinion.
