I think Scheifele and Ziban both have considerable upside, but I think if both players fail to reach that potential, Ziban is still capable of being a 3rd line center at this level, while Scheifele's main contribution will likely always be his offense.
Totally agree on all you said here.

I can see him becoming a first liner or he can be utilized like Jordan Staal as the 3rd line Center. That why I think Colorado goes for him so they Have Stastny-Duchesne-Ziban down the middle.
