Hertl could bust.

I'm not high on Coyle, but he's as much as a safe bet to make the NHL. Even if his scoring doesn't totally translate (interestingly Nieto had more NHL point equivalencies than Coyle even after he left college and went on a crazy scoring spree), he has all the tools to be a great 3rd liner. If Hertl doesn't work on his skating a lot, he could not even make the NHL.
