Akeson (and Manning and Lehtivuori if we include defensemen) and even Pither have higher ceilings than Cousins.

Cousins though is more likely to reach his ceiling. I like to believe he can be a very good third line center, maybe push for a second line center spot if he makes the NHL. Of course, making the NHL is the big step, and a top 6 role might be a reach.
