And (re: the bolded parts above) remember that Dietz was 17 when drafted, Thrower 18.


Dietz is 5 months older with a full year of hockey development on Thrower. Thrower was still picked to play ahead of Dietz in the lineup despite Dietz's experience advantage.

I am comparing apples to apples people. I like Dietz as a prospect but you would have a hard time finding scouts who prefer him over Thrower.
