just asking the question. you made a point of saying comparisons of certain kids to past superstars are strictly for reference of style of play.
then you pointed out that you didn't like the comparison of schenn to stevens/weber/foote, but you thought he was more of a richardson/allen. that indicated to me that you were talking both style and upside potential.
it would be great if people would clarify exactly what kind of comparisons they're making. big difference in comparing style and comparing upside.
Every fanbase calls their first, second and third round prospects future first line scoring, first pairing defensemen, and franchise workhorse goalies. Why can't we?
i don't think there can be any accusation of an overall lack of positive hype among leafs fans.
i think posters on this leafs board do a fine job of predicting big things for most prospects. i suspect moreso than most other fansbases.
