Connauton has talent but looks so lost in his own zone that it's hard to be optimistic. If MacTavish can help change that then it would be great to be wrong. But after years of following prospects, I've learned to be very skeptical of players who don't show consistent forward progress in their game. The fail rate is too high not to be.

I wouldn't even call either player poor selections necesarily, as they both have the raw tools to be NHL players. I just don't think either one is showing enough to be considered a good bet to make the NHL.
