I agree.

The big difference between the two though is that when Blake was at Bowling Green he was still a total monster and there wasn't any real doubt that he would be a solid NHLer one day. AR is a very good developing talent and I think very highly of him but his overall talent level isn't what RB's was at the same point in time imo.

Still as far as the two being later bloomers I agree and we nabbed a good one when we picked up AR, that is certain.
