London is hosting the Mem Cup. Kid should go there, he'll get a lot of hockey and play with some amazing players.
I don't have any real opinion on the player, thought he looked better in the U-18 than some people seem to describe him as, but it's too small a sample to really form an opinion. Can't help but like his size, of course. So far so good.
I literally don't understand how anyone can have any other opinion than yours.
No, I'm not impressed, but he's not a bad pick. We just won't know for another few years.
This is a typical non-sexy hockey pick. Most people didn't even see him enough to comment on his skills. Timmins might have picked him this early because there aren't very many of these guys in the draft so he wanted to make sure he got him. The remaining players are more similar and he could come away with a great haul overall.
Googling him a while ago I found a few different articles expecting him to go late first.
