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.
It's just my opinion. I think Zaborsky has a tremendous amount of skill and I think it's going to show in the AHL this season. He's my sleeper pick, if you will. I understand it's an unpopular opinion, but it's still mine.
