    Montreal signed him and he's really out performing his competetion, so did he transform or something considering he wasn't even drafted, does he have any potential at all, or is he borderline?

    I see he won best over age player in OHL last year, who would he be compared to? is he steal by habs something in the line of how they got Danis?

    He's a good offensive defenseman with a very good wrist shot. You'll never see him dish out a big hit, and he's not big (which is probably why he was never drafted). He's pretty solid on his skates and doesn't get rattled - he's easily the calmest defenseman I've seen in the OHL. He can get caught out of position, but is generally pretty smart.

    He's a great pickup for Hamilton; whether he ever plays in Montreal remains to be seen.

    So far he's doing great. Playing better than Bouillon, Hainsey and Streit... I highly doubt we'll see him this year, but he might make a case for a spot next year. He seems like a logical match with Komisarek.
