  1. I really don't think Virt's as good of a fit with the Sedins as people seem to think. Different games entirely. He plays North South and they most certainly do not. I can see how his speed(puck retrieval)/physicality/shot might seem attractive on the surface but they don't play very complimentary styles. How effective is his speed while they're patiently cycling the puck? I'm not convinced his positional awareness (while good for his age) is anywhere near Burrow's or Vrbata's. IMO, if he does get promoted to the top 9, it's with Sutter or Horvat. (He could basically be a bigger, faster

  2. Holy man crushes Batman lol. But seriously, kids that just turned 19 don't look like that typically. Fastest skater forwards and backwards in his draft class. His first shot in practice at Utica went through the net. Draft +2 is fine for his skill set. Just give him some coaching and some Sedinery.

  3. It should be noted that he's been playing on big ice. He'll have to adjust to smaller ice which holefully plays to his advantage in the long run. If he can hold his own on big ice he might have a chance. We forget reach is huge for a defensman and if he's got speed he's got a chance
