Firstly, disagree than Korpedo and Moore are necessarily ahead of Byers, they have all spent two season on the Wolfpack roster and none of the three have proved themselves to be far ahead of the other two. Second, they all fill different positional roles. Korpedo is a talented, possible top six, speedy winger with some size and defensive acumen. Moore is a defensive specialist, penalty-killer, with some relatively soft hands, who in his prime will probably learn to score from the third line. Byers is a mucker, who plays a tough game in front of the net and in the corners. He also has more scoring prowess a typical fourth line mucker and I could see him turn himself into a Tomas Holmstrom type, big body in front of the net, who when surrounded by lots of talent can tip a ton of pucks into the net.
