Both these guys realistically won't be in the NHL for another two-three years and will probably spend atleast a season in the Minors learning the game anyways. The bulk of the leadership and expectations of this team will be shouldered around Hall, Eberle and whoever we pick up first this year. They won't have the same pressure Mike Comrie had to face when everyone declared him the heir apparent to Doug Weight after one post season game.
I will be shocked if the Simpson kid doesn't spend all 4 yeard at University and then AHL for a year or two. Considering how smart he is I think he is smart enough to realize that what happened to his dad could happen to him and that the education could be needed in the future.
