If Nyquist were drafted by any other team but Detroit, he'd be a sleeper prospect just like Sgarbossa. Smith and Barrie are the same way, but they both player very different styles, so IMO you cant really compare them. Barrie is better on Offense, Smith better on Defense.

As for the Kronwall Johnson comment, IMO they are very close to each other. We'll see how Kronwall plays this year without Lidstrom. Theyre both Top 20-25 Dmen in the NHL, Johnson still has a couple years to grow, Kronwall probably doesnt.
Kronwall didn't even play with Lidstrom last year, if anything his offensive stats will increase because he will get first pairing minutes and top unit pp time.
