The only ones that I would even consider are Johansen, Gudbrandson, or Niederreiter.
Which is what I was trying to say in another thread. Going all chicken little about a 21 year old, who is doing better than 96% of his draft class seems more than a little short sighted.
Very much agree with you, and even some of those listed haven't really proved to be any better then burmi (can't disappointing if they don't get a shot)
As i just found out in my study (now posted in the draft thread), we really shouldn't be too bummed even if burmi doesn't become any more then a third line defensive specialist. The odds are stacked against him. If anything we should be stoked that he has proved to be a defensively sound player and not a complete bust already.
I think we get a litte carried away about just how good our prospects "should" be.
