I guess what I am trying to say is... Lets see him make and play in the bigs before we compare him to All-stars.

Yes he has some desirable skill, but so do all of these kids, and a couple of them are going to be complete busts.


Also, Brian Campbell is dang good hockey player. I would be over the moon to get that kind of player 9th overall.
Not to nitpick but Boyd Deveraux is a forward.
