I honestly think that both could be 30 goal scorers in the NHL.

Both are excellent prospects, Thomas has an excellent offensive sense for the game and how to score goals, along with a world class shot for someone his age. Not only does that seperate him from Dawes, but his speed does too. Dawes NEVER, not even at the NHL level had the footspeed that Thomas has NOW. Now, with that being said, I'm not saying he's got St. Louis' speed, but better than Dawes.

Kreider on the other hand has the overall package of physical tools with potential to be unlocked, and doesn't exactly have the smarts that you figure a player of his caliber should have or should show signs of having at this point. Kreider's been buried under seniors as Jerry York refuses to budge from the loyalty he shows to the seniors. Kreider will get more time this year, and if he decides to go back for another, then too.
