I remember how excited I was when he scored 27 goals in 29 games with the Regina Pats in '93-94. He had a lethal wrist shot. He was supposed to be reasonably mobile but just couldn't put it all together. He was too much of a liability in his own end. He has good size too. The big three blueline prospects back then were Wilkie, Rory Fitzpatrick, and the third guy was named Rivet.
I watched him a fair amount of times when he played for the Pats and thought he was great. He could skate and shoot very well and was heads and above most players on the ice almost every time I saw him. I was certain he was a sure-fire NHL'er back then and was excited when he got drafted by the Habs. He was one of those guys who had a lot of poise out there and could control the flow of a game.
But for some reason he just couldn't bring it in the NHL. I don't know if he had personal problems or lacked confidence or what, but he just didn't pan out.
