Who's comparing Ladd's draft position to Gillies' or even their potential? I was just describing some of Gillies' projections as to an NHL play like Ladd during his time with Chicago. - A 15 goal, 40-45 point 3rd liner with 2nd line upside.

Jarick you kind of made my point for me. Gillies was on a good path until he was thrown into the NHL. He had an ok draft year. Was drafted on a reach because of his size and skating. And then had a pretty solid post-draft year.

Instead of returning to the WHL to lead his team in all parts of the game, he got 4 minutes a night and the pressbox on a team that had zero need for him.

Edit - And so he has regressed/hasn't improved to the point where he's playing no better than his draft year.
