Yup...Percy is no Dougie Hamilton. He's Stuart Percy. They are two different players. Hamilton has more offensive upside and better size, but Percy, IMO, is better all-round and is unflappable. I've seen two occasions where Hamilton hasn't stepped to the plate. He was pretty much invisible two years ago in the Eastern Final between the Majors and IceDogs, and last year in the OHL Finals he had a good first game then was irrelevant. A pick of his stature needs to be better in those types of situations.
Percy is more consistent, if less flashy, and is not intimidated by pressure. The concern at this point is that last year's injuries do not become a long term liability.
The two are not comparable players, IMO. Percy is more in the mold of a Matt Finn...displays leadership and is solid both ways.
