logic is flawed
The other posters logic isn't flawed. Your logic is only looking at right now. When debating prospects it's long term potential and where they'll be down the road in their career. While I love Bourque and his game right now, no one knows who will be better between the three of them. The other thing to think about is power forwards, Budish, take longer to develop and find their games. That has always been the case. Of the three, I think Beck will end up being the best of the three. Bourque is a solid two way player for sure but Beck has natural goal scorer ability. What ends up happening is anyone's guess but I agree with other poster's view point on how to evaluate a prospect.
