Quine projection from RWC: Quine’s skating and skill level make him an interesting prospect, but he’s still learning how to be a complete player. He has the assets to be a useful NHL player, although the jury is still out on where he could one day fit into a big-league lineup. Either way, he’s coming off a strong season and could emerge as a top-10 or -20 scorer in the OHL in 2012-13.

Athanasiou Projection from RWC; Athanasiou slid from a potential top 15 pick a year before the 2012 draft all the way to the 110th spot, where the Red Wings drafted him. Although they’re not sure what he’ll be, they’re almost certain he’ll be an NHLer. They hope he’ll have a breakout year in the OHL in 2012-13 with London and prove he has learned his lesson from being a healthy scratch late in his draft year.

Like Wuest, I believe Athanasiou has Quine beat both ways: 1) More likely to be an NHLer with his skillset and 2) More likely to be an impact player with his skillset
