      I get the impression that—ready or not—he’d be a distinct improvement over the likes of Carl Hagelin or Richard Panik…..Connor McMichael looks to be such a pure Alex DeBrincat-like shooter that he’d likely thrive on any line Tom Reirden decided to put him on–not to mention man advantage situations…

      Just my opinion,
