9th overall pick, played great in juniors, made WJHC. Very big. Sounds a lot like Jared Cowan to me.
Franchise Winger>average #1 Defenseman
LOL. So because players have a few similarities that means they're the same? That's like the Leaf fan who said Hamilton might have Cody Franson's upside. Why don't you compare Hamilton and Cowen's seasons after getting drafted in Juniors?
Did Cowen go over PPG? Nope. (Hamilton- 72 points in 50 GP. Cowen- 30 points in 59 GP.)
Was Cowen named the best Defenseman of his league? Nope. (09-10 WHL Defenseman of the Year was Tyson Barrie. Meanwhile Hamilton named the top Defenseman last year in all of the CHL.)
But they're both big and played well after getting drafted in the same point, so I guess they're identical. Let's just ignore the much higher offensive upside Hamilton possesses.
By the way, I said originally that I thought Edmonton shouldn't give up Yakupov.
