At last glace they have a thread with a link to something Corey Pronman had written...case closed.
Bingo! If he was as great as many wish he was, he would have stuck with the big club. He didnt, and went back to juniors and dominated kids with his size. In the NHL, he wont have that physical luxury, but his size is impressive. If he can actually put it all togther then the Hawks might have something but again, the jury is still out, and you dont trade a question mark for a proven player, sorry.
This has come up countless times with Hawk fans proclaiming Saad a top 10 pick in a redo and it just isnt the case. Injuries? Sure, but the fact remains if he can keep up that type of production against men, and that hasnt been seen yet.
So if a player doesn't stick with his team for the whole year the year after being drafted he's a bust in your eyes? Good to know RNH, Landeskog, Larsson, and Couturier are the only good players to come out of the 2011 NHL Draft. The NHL is going to be pretty awful in a few years when all we have are all the busts from the last few drafts to deal with.
