Nemisz has played in the NHL and his past few call ups he hasn't looked out of place. He's a very good complimentary player, and the reason Baertschi scored some of the goals he did in his NHL call-up.
It depends how you're looking at it. I am talking straight potential.
I view Nemisz as being a 3rd line player if all works out. I view Ferland as having 2nd line upside. You do make a good point about him being similar to Howse, the difference being Howse was being called out for a lack of effort all season, Ferland has apparently been a very hard worker through junior.
