Heikkinen is a prospect by HF standards. I'd have to say he's an oversight at this point. I'd imagine he'd be up there by now considering so many people expect him to make the team this year.
Even so on Zaborsky--1) not a point a game player in the ECHL when his biggest asset is offense. As well 2) he's small and for him to make it as a Ranger someday with those 2 qualifications he's going to have to be a top 6 player and that just does not look in the cards.

Comparing him to say someone like Jordan Owens who also spent some time in the ECHL--is only a little bit bigger but has tremendous speed and Callahan type grit and who could be much more realistically an energy player somewhere towards the bottom of your forward group is IMO a much better bet. I just can't see how Zaborsky leapfrogs all these guys who have already proven they can stick at a higher level.
