as others have said, you are comparing a much more polished player with one who is currently used in a bottom 6 role at the AHL level. If Heard had the opportunities that Malone had his first season (when he was 22), we may have seen more out of Heard so far. Right now he is a spark plug/ pest working on his pro game while guys like Malone and company are seeing regular minutes and PP time. Love to think Malone could be someone who produces offensively along the lines of McGinn and Downie but I just don't see it. But anything can happen as guys like Foligno (Buffalo) have shown. Overall potential should lean slightly in Heard's favor as it currently stands.
