He is still in college, it's really hard to get a read on him. Seems like he is doing well there, but i think he will probably play in the AHL before he comes here(if he ever does).
from the recent Islanders prospect pool of top 20
Wes O’Neill is considered the love him or hate him prospect in the Islanders stable of prospects. In his draft year, O’Neill was considered a classic case of having many tools but a questionable toolbox.
This season, O’Neill has taken further strides in all facets of his game. He is one of the leaders for Notre Dame and is considered a top threat in the NCAA. O’Neill is a hardworking player and was relied heavily on by coach Jeff Jackson. The ongoing issue with O’Neill is forcing passes into traffic and making questionable decisions with the puck. If those issues are overcome, he can have a good overall game.
O’Neill is expected back for a fourth and final season with the Irish. His strong skating and offensive skills will continue to be honed in a solid NCAA program.
He is sort of positioned in a wierd place on the list. Basically Islanders Second round draft pick Dustin Kohn(who is having an average seaons, but could do better) is 12, and 14 is definantly a drop off after that(or you could argue 13th). I guess the word project would be the best way to describe O`Neill.
