To this and your prior message, fair enough. I just didn't understand why we were having a hypothetical discussion about a prospect whose play is pretty well documented. We pretty much know he's not going to be good enough for a top six AHL spot, especially with who he has ahead of him on the depth chart.
I don't think anyone was saying that a prospect absolutely needs to be a go-to guy to develop, but Kuehnhackl was surrounded by some of the best players in Juniors this season. Replace 'go-to guy' with 'player seeing increased responsibility' and I don't think we have a problem here.
