Kind of reminds me of the Cory Schneider threads a couple years back. After 5 years of development that him win every where he went people were trying to claim he was worth less than his late first round pick selection 5 years prior..
If he were in the AHL and it was looking like he was adjusting well to the NA game you'd have an apt comparison, but hes still in SEL and there is always the risk that they don't make the transition. As I stated earlier I think hes worth a proven prospect+2nd rounder, he's not worth a roster player, and hes not worth a top pick (NHL ready player).
