Again, what does jr hockey have to do with the pros? He dominated when he was 3" and 30#s heavier than everyone else.
Allot of guys that have great jr. careers don't have great NHL careers. Its not relevant. Ask Yannic Riendue lol.
As I've said above he is the only guy in the league that has the potential to score 30 goals and fight HW's if he wants to, no other player brings that to the table and has that kind of combination between toughness and skill.
For me that combination and potential is easily worth 6 millions, every team and every fan would love to have such a player, he is worth the money more then Rick Nash
or Thomas Vanek
for example and more the most of the other guys getting payed 6 millions.
