As a Yotes fan, gotta say you guys really might have fleeced us here. He's got tremendous offensive upside, just needed some work on his D game and honestly never even got a chance in PHX. He played like 12 games and sat in the press box the rest of this season and his value is currently at an all-time low.
I'd feel pretty good if I was a Hawks fan giving up likely a 55-60th pick in a crap draft for this guy. I know I'm pretty upset with how this turned out
This guy has an offensive upside like no other young defensemen out there.
He was a PPG in SEL before coming over to NHL.
If he just sorts out his defensive problems he will be a stud. A big, tall mobile defender with an absolute crazy offensive upside. What a steal.
You can see I'm pumped? He played for my arch-rival in Sweden and I love him.
