If he can make Hershey in the fall and remain as a regular that will say a lot about his make-up.
Flemming and Wey's respective upsides probably aren't significantly different, as they're both 5-7 types. It's a matter of preference. More of a go-to role at BC should help Wey make necessary all-around strides.
Aside from a few games and development camp exposure we're all operating under fairly limited knowledge but I'd welcome more debate.
It's a real nice problem to have IMHO. We haven't had too many low round dman that have shown this growth this early. McNeil maybe but he still hasn't accomplished what these two did this soon.
Personally after watching both wey in wjc and flemming in mem cup I'm very excited about their possibilities.
I too agree about welcoming debate. And typically I'd put a lot of stock in coaches polls. But I have to wonder. Where are all the other highly rated ohl players? If this list is somehow supposed to give credence to a prospects NHL future then where are Landenskog, NAmestinkov, Murphy, etc. It's hard to give validity to a list that posters are taking as validity of NHL prospect value without these guys on it IMHO.
