Battling the wonderful and battle a little harder so yeah I'm cautiously optimistic analysts say yes these numbers mean that he is going to be. Interspersed -- kind of right away is gonna be work to do. But in terms I mean you can't ask for anything more. And what he's doing right now at a level that he's playing at.

And some of these other guys. And again it's a very tough situation her an eighteen year old can be compared to one of the best players in hockey right now on the world. You know multiple wasn't the lone player. At nineteen point eight idiot today you know the confidence. To read more surrogate and physically. And I'm not sure -- You know I can -- cook could be that same type of player with more confident I wanna see what happens when. He'd get up is playing at -- -- -- couple kids that he'd been through that hack and whack in that goes on NASA would hardly gonna react.
