<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Bcarlo25</b></div><div>Frankly, if you aren’t judging players every time you watch them, regardless of age, what the heck is the point? It’s called critical thinking.

A crazy statement would be to say, “he is definitively a bust, he won’t be good. His ceiling is capped. He stinks.”

I didn’t say that though. He’s looked bad, and I think he’ll be a bust. Could he have a major breakthrough and figure it out? Absolutely. He could have a heck of a game, get some confidence, and be a point per game player from here on out, and I would be wrong. It’s happened before and it will happen again.

Having said that, I feel okay about this one. I think sometimes young players struggle at five on five because it’s a lot to learn, but when they get more space on the powerplay, they look a bit more at home. I think that’s a really good indicator that a guy will figure it out. I don’t see it on the powerplay either from him.

I’m judging him, because I judge every player every time i watch hockey. He’s looked bad, and I think there are a lot of indicators that he won’t live up to his potential in the NHL. The end.</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Bcarlo25</b></div><div>The difference: I think. That other poster said, “KK is not, and will not be a bust.”

I said I think this player will be a bust.

See the difference, buddy?</div></div>

I guess all we can do is wait and see on Kakko. See if he proves himself a bust or an NHL player.
