Steven Anthony has the size and skill teams are looking for in an NHL regular, but there are skeptics who question his commitment level and consistency. Despite great expectations, Steven Anthony had difficulty adjusting to the CHL, and bristled under the stern tutelage of former SeaDogs coach Jacque Bealieu in his first few seasons. He has talked openly about "losing confidence" in the early stages of his QMJHL career, and despite his tantalizing skillset - he slipped to the seventh round of the NHL draft.
