I think what you'll see happen with Pratt is the same as what happened
with St Hilaire. They struggle to get a place for the first couple of
years, and then gradually mature into the player they are predicted to
be. Having said that, I still don't see where he will fit in in the
future as IMO Sinfield will replace Powell at Stand Off and the two wing
spots are sorted for a while to come yet.
Especially if Wendell joins next year. ;-)
