Ahhhh yes, they keyboard kings of HFBoards who look only at stats and probably have never watched a junior game in their lives.

Tom Sestito, the plug who had a cup of coffee this year with the Flyers and who Richards uttered the hilarious "this is fantasy camp" chirp at during 24/7 outscored James Neal at the same age (19) on their 06/07 Plymouth Whalers team. http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/l...011452007.html

There's thousands of similar examples I can bring up in the last decade. You want your prospects to put up points and factor in offensively, but you have to realize there's so much you can't tell about a player by looking at the stats sheet.

St. Croix is a long term prospect. 3-4 years away. Miller might be ready to step in right now.
