What is Jakub Kindl's potential? Is he near the NHL?
Potential: Top pairing defenceman if all goes right
Realistically: #3-6 defenceman
He's only 19, so he's atleast 2 years away from the NHL, probably more.
He was an early candidate to be picked in the top 3 picks in his draft year, it was pretty much Crosby, Brule, Anikyenko, Kindl, Price, Rask, Cogliano, Latendresse, etc... very early on.
He, along with a few of those guys dropped.
Agreed, but I think he'll most likely end up as a #3 or 4 defenseman with the ability to put up some regular PP playing time.
He seems similar to Dmitri Kalinin, actually that's probably the best prospect/player comparison out there.
