What’s funny is that Pronman did a piece that talked about most important attribute and overrated attribute for prospects.

The results were 16% thought it was the most important one and 18% said it was the most overrated. I think hockey sense and compete and character are the trinity, although if you don’t have enough skating or skill, then it doesn’t matter much.

The NHL’s best ever player: Fastest? Nope. Best skater? Nope. Best shot? Nope. But his hockey IQ was off the charts.
