From what I read, Friesen seemed a like a bit of a hothead in the beginning of his career that focused more on offense, and developed that two-way game as he matured as a player. I only remember the Friesen of the early 2000s that was more of a gritty role player for the Devils.
You're being generous. Colville has better offensive stats than most O6 wingers selected, and has the two-way game in addition to that. Carter doesn't really match up in any way that I can see.
Colville was voted an all-star in this draft, and Carter was one of the least popular picks here (and I didn't even vote for him).
Fair enough. Carter's offense looked better than I thought it would going in, so I didn't want to just declare Colville better.
