NAS - remove his draft position and he still had an unreal junior career, pretty good international performance. great size, great skating, great tools, great offensive instincts. Him getting sat last year had more to do with the fact that he had played an absurd amount of hockey between junior and the NHL, and the fact that he's a righty.
So he's big, he can play hockey and he did well as a kid against other kids.
He was sat last year because he was getting burned, not because he was tired.
I think he was getting burned partly because he played so much hockey and as you say the latter part of the games he played were against men at the highest level of hockey being played.
It's really hard to evaluate a dman. I don't know if hamilton will be a star he shows potential but I'm not certain
Enough to peg him s future norris. Lets just say I'm nit convinced. Usually takes more time to develop ss s dman but subban would make a strong argument. Too many dmen destined for stardom never panned out
I.e redden.phillps.johnson.rathjie. etc..
Even hedberg hasn't lived up to his potential yet
He sure has taken a long time to develop considering his draft position, size and hype. He still isn't considered elite, imo.
