Yeah, the Harry Watson comparison is a good one. And this is a guy who was frequently taken in the 500s, slowly rising, before, in the last couple drafts, others started taking a sharp knife to him, so to speak, and said, "ok, are we starting to overrate him?" 350-ish is probably where he belongs, and I wouldn't say the case for Gillies or Broadbent is particularly stronger.
What does this say for Wayne Cashman? He's always one of the weakest offensive players on a scoring line and that came out last draft, but a good GM took him this time again higher than last time (when I got him, he was a value compared to past draft positions). Should he fall? Or is the fact that he is quite possibly the best of all-time at one important skill his saving grace?
