you don't know that. Most people here thought Dubinsky would never be as good as he his now, in fact I remember some saying he is just a 3rd line player. I think that we have coul have three more top 6 players in the system. Anisimov, Grachev, and Hagelin. Stepan and Weise are wildcards, especially Stepan. out of all of the I think Hagelin will be the best, I just have this real special feeling about him, even though I only saw him play 2 or 3 times. Sorta like the feeling when we drafted Dubi. But I think he might have more pure skill.
