I've never really seen any prospect in this year's draft play.

I'm sure Shero will pick a decent player at 22 and if Sissons is available and not taken by the Penguins, then he probably wasn't the best player for this team.

To me, Sissons can be a future top 6 RW or 3rd line center. He's a young leader being named captain of his WHL squad at age 17. He's a strong two way player who seems like he would fit the Pens.

The back to back 41 point seasons shouldn't be a concern, if he can convert that to the NHL, he can be a player like Staal.

EDIT: Or if he reaches his potential, he could be a player like Ryan Kesler or Mike Richards.
