I know you see a lot of BPT games and I respect your opinion. I like deHaan and think he'll be an NHL player for a long time but let's not pretend that he's proven anything at the AHL level just yet. It's not like he's outgrown the league. He's till young and has a lot of NHL tools. Based solely on his skating, poise and hockey instincts, he'll be an NHL player.

Hammer's got nothing to prove. He should just stay healthy and not try and do too much, work on his offense, etc.

Same for players in Europe (Grabner, Nielsen, Tavares, Joensuu, MacDonald, Streit, Visnovsky, others I've missed)

Though Grabner should practice breakaways
