The implication being made here is that Palushaj will always be a fringe NHLer while in the future Avtsin may start tearing it up and become a top 6 forward.

Not saying I agree, I see Palushaj as a future 3rd liner like Versteeg. (Similar imo)

Avtsin was playing with a nagging injury all last year, which was his first year of pro on a different sized rink and he was just 19. Give the kid a bit more credit he wasn't awful. This is his year to step up. If he can have 0.5ppg that will be just fine since it's ultimately going to be his first year injury free.
