That 1st rounder talk was one year ago, though. And people said the same about Salmonsson so I'd take this "He'd be X if Y hadn't happened" with a big grain of salt. Junior players who are mostly built on speed and lack hockey sense usually have a hard time in the pro ranks. *cough* Rico Fata *cough* Marcantuoni was absolutely worth taking a chance on in the 4th round but currently he's as unproven as it gets.
