Admittedly I haven't which is why my argument is pretty flawed. I'm basing it on the fact that almost every major junior player who goes on to play in the NHL (excluding goons) will have put up somewhat decent offensive numbers by their 20 year old season. Troy Bodie put up 28 goals in his last year of juniors. JF Jacques scored 78 points in 66 games. Even Josh Brittain had a year where he scored 32 goals. Cramarossa's career high is 12 and this year he's on pace for 8-9 goals at the moment.

I could be 100% off on this and I'll gladly admit it if Cramarossa ever plays an NHL game. I'm not a fan of boxscore scouting and but his numbers just stand out as completely unimpressive even for a defensive forward with character.
