I think it's far too early to talk about Graovac as a legitimate top six forward prospect. All this hot streak has done is given him a very good shot at an ELC, something he probably wasn't going to receive if he didn't take a major step forward this year.
Those who watch 67s games have always seen some tools in Graovac (and Steven Janes as well, but to a lesser extent), but the results were underwhelming. He made a guy like Martindale, himself a toolsy but enigmatic player, seem remarkably consistent by contrast. But Graovac's still a long way from emerging as a front-line prospect - the sample size is simply far too small to suggest he has gone from underachiever to blue chipper.
Even if Graovac continues to score all season (at a good rate, but not a goal a game), I'm skeptical until I see him against another type of competition, whether it's the WJC or the AHL.
