And the truth is, most of them will never be regulars at the NHL level.
Go watch Jared Knight play....it is more than one persons opinion...

I watched Ashton play for nearly two seasons and he is a decent skater who lacked grit....not the same can be said about Jared Knight...he will be a regular in the NHL....Blacker will as well. Colborne I watched play a lot for a year out here but that was a long while ago. Big body but like butter, soft. The two first round pick were Seguin and Hamilton both Elite talent....
