Calling him 5'10 is generous too imo.

He most likely wont make it, but I really like the pick. Only player the Oilers drafted in 2012 not named Yakupov that has impact player potential. His post draft numbers to date have been far more impressive than Schultz.
That has more to do with age than anything.

LaLeggia is in his sophomore year. He'd have to top 18 goals and 47 points to beat out Schultz during his sophomore season.
