And I wouldn't even trade Kulemin for the 1st overall pick.
He was a 23 year old playing college hockey.
Sure he played great, but this can be compared to Ryan Ellis putting up massive numbers in the OHL.
I like Frattin as much as a lot of Leaf fans do, but to not trade him for the tenth overall, a player like Zibanejad, Armia or Beaulieu who have 1st line and pairing potential is absurd.
Frattin's going to be a good player, at this stage he's boom/bust. I see his upside as a "current" Scott Hartnell guy, 20-25 with a great shot and physicality.
