Aside from the fact that ADK's blueline isn't exactly ripe with talent, being #1 in the A does not always translate to anything in the NHL. Just ask my boy Michael Leighton. Hopefully I'm wrong, but I'm really not expecting much more from him than I would from Walker or Lilja. If they run with him as #6, throw Lilja on the bench, and ditch Walker for the rest of the year, I don't think the season would turn out much different than if they stick with Walker/Lilja as 6/7.
Well we agree to disagree. I think Gustafsson has the potential to be a #4 defender.
