Pronman has consistently regarded his shot as elite and his skating as high level as well- and has had good things to say about his puck skills and his offensive vision and creativity. That and his history of production earned him a lot of hype in the past. The knock on Sprong seems to really be his 200 foot game, his tendency toward high risk plays, and his inconsistency. From what I’ve read, he struggled initially when demoted to the AHL to start the year, but eventually got his head back on straight and made an earnest effort towards personal and professional growth and a more complete game has started to come along. He’s a work in progress though and it’s anybody’s guess how he’ll jive with Laviolette. I do think his speed will serve him well in an uptempo, aggressive system though if he stays committed to using it holistically. As to whether or not he’ll get an opportunity, who knows? I could see the limited roster moves going in a bunch of potential directions but I think some of it will come down to which opportunities present themselves, so we shall see.
