This kid seems to have an amazing head on his shoulders.
He is playing for his hometown team, cool as a cucumber.
Playing with guys that just 4-6 years ago he was idolizing, cool as cucumber
Playing as a rookie in the ASG, cool as a cucumber.
Breaks the fastest skater record, cool as a cucumber and as humble as can be.
Compare that to what happened with Sequin in Boston (I don't believe all of the stories, Boston sports teams are vicious when a player is on his way out), this kid has the makings of a GREAT Red Wing Captain.
I find myself drawn to anything about him right now, he is just an all around good kid, with great physical gifts.
I hope to see him in the winged wheel for a long time!
From that couch to leading the god damn Red Wings in points as a first year 19 year old. Don't like using the word, but if this isn't epic, what is.f****** amazing.
Rewatching the video, he only cheated on 1 wrister, at 3:10 in the video, the rest are legit wrist shots with no snap action. Looked good then, looking good now. His friend uses snaps mostly to get the power for comparison.
