He's better off now that Hitchcock is gone (which should temper your evaluation of all Columbus prospects), but it'll be a long road for him to make it to the NHL, if he does at all. The only thing that might get him to the NHL with Columbus is Columbus' relative lack of depth at center. The problem is that he projects as a 3rd-4th liner and his size will probably hold him back. It'll be interesting to see what happens, though.
at least it's not just us?
