^ I think the point is that opinions are nothing without context (duh). You can say prospect X is poor because he isn't producing, but then what is the team producing? Or that he's too small, but is he taking Dzone draws? Is he being sheltered in any way?
I've ripped on prospects here on multiple occasions. Tiranis knows that I've questioned the scouting, even compared it to DET many times, concluding that it falls well short. But I also understand the environment in which these prospects exist. CHI is not a high scoring team. They weren't when Cody was there either. Yet, he comes up and scores at a top6 rate playing 3rd line minutes... So you have to question the environment.
For Kassian, I have no doubt he'll be up with the big club when the season starts. Schroeder will be up for a time, while Kesler is out. Both will show us how much more improved they are in the _NHL_context_. Only then will we really know what they are truly capable of. And for the sake of argument, I'm betting Schroeder shows better offensively than he has to this point.
