I know it when I see it -- just as when I called Prucha one of the steals of the draft at his draft time.
I agree that anyone who has seen these kids play is going to have a more valid opinion than anyone who hasn't, which is most of us. But that being said, nobody "knows it when they see it." People who do this for a living know it when they see it less than 50% of the time. If you knew Petr Prucha was going to be an NHL player, hats off, you know more than most NHL GMs. The only way you can "know" what these kids are gonna be is if you have some sort of magic crystal ball

I have a few questions for you and that crystal ball....
