Roman Josi

I read some pretty good thing about this guy. I have only seen few Preds game but it seems to be ready for the NHL. Some Nashville fans say he 's becoming the number one in prospects chart, above Blum or Ellis. So the number 1 prospect in that organisation. But what is the ceiling for Roman Josi?

I assume he deserves more that 7.0B http://www.hockeysfuture.com/prospects/roman_josi

I watched him when he was still playing in Switzerland, where he was just outstanding. Now I'd like to hear some updates!

He reminds everyone, from fans to coaches, so much of Ryan Suter when he broke into the league that it's eerie.

Josi has the look/projection of a solid no. 3 d-man.

I think on a team without both of Suter and weber, he could be a first pairing guy. His tools encompass both ends of the ice and everywhere in between.

Currently, he's an awesome top 4 defenseman prone to a few rookie mistakes along with some outstanding plays. Give him a few years, and he can be an awesome two way defenseman as either one of the best #3 defenseman in the game or a solid #2 on most teams. Heck, he could even be a #1, though i dont see that as the likely outcome.

Am I the only one who gets the feeling that it'll be like Suter never left with this kid paired with Weber?

I don't think he will have that sort of impact immediately, but I do think he will be every bit as good as Suter was on Weber's pairing. He looked more than capable on the second pairing last year. He also has a higher offensive upside than Suter.

Really?

What kind of tools does he possess that gives him better upside?

Very good. You won't get Weber\Suter chemistry overnight, but I think in the long run, this is going to be a very good pairing.
