All I know about the kid is that he racks up a ton of penalty minutes, and man does he score. If he can continue to put the puck in the net in the pros, of course he could be. Depends what path he takes once he enters the league: pest, or scorer with an edge.
I think he definitely can, but it'll be more of a complimentary top 6 role. Think of Downie's role on every team he's been on. He's getting 1st and 2nd line minutes yet he isn't among the top 6 most skilled players on his team, he just "fits" well. Same can be said for Marchand.
Same here. He will have to be pretty impressive in camp though.
If Burke can move out a bunch of players this summer, I think Ross stands a good chance to make the team, or at the very least get a solid look early in the season. His grittyness is something this team badly needs, to the point where I bet they would be willing to tolerate a few mistakes here and there.
Man I hope he does well, we need a guy like him soooooo bad. I can't take another Bruins Leafs gong show.
