I liked Sissons more than Sutter going into the draft, but he likely won't be more than a 3rd line winger, at best, imo. There's still a pretty decent chance, he doesn't make the NHL at all.

So drafting based on lineage sometimes works, and some feel there's less risk. But you never know with prospects. Jimmy Roy may have his hands full getting Sutter back on track.
