What does everyone think of his first 2 games in the NHL? From what I've seen he has looked great and skates very well. The fans in Belle Centre seemed to like him as well.

I think when you're playing in your first NHL game and you get called for a penalty, you shut your mouth and go to the box, not complain and b*tch about the call.

He seemed to have his head up most of the time, avoiding a big hit by Pronger in one of the games. I didn't see anything that was super impressive though.

I'd say he did a lot better than any bulldogs' d-men we tried this season. Looked confident and showed skill and speed. Will need to play a safer game though.

I was impressed but I think we should be cautious. No point in putting him in a line-up fighting for the playoffs. Too much pressure. I think he could do it but why take the chance to screw him up? He could be a one of a kind player if handled properly. He has everything. EVERYTHING!

Good player. I dont see him ever being a star or contending for the Hart, but he's a solid player whom any team would be lucky to have.
Its also nice to see a person of color in the NHL. A little diversity would be nice, assuming the player is good enough to earn a spot on a team.

This may just be me talking but i have been fortunate enough to see him play some games with the Bull Dogs and this kid is absolutely phenomenal. If he comes into whole i can really see him hitting the 80 point plateau in the NHL.

A good player soon to improve more in the off season and possibly start and end the seasons with the Canadiens.
