In my opinion, playoffs are going to be the biggest factor in his case. He stepped it up when he was needed earlier this year, but had a thougher (kind of) stretch afterward. In the former, he has shown to be a top 10 forward... in the latter, more of a 15-25 winger. Is it about being clutch or is it about being «streaky»? (not the usual streaky, he doesn't reach terrible lows, but his play was much better for a stretch than the following games... I really want to make sure I don't carry a false message because of poor wording) Or maybe it is simply a developmental thing.
Obviously, playoffs play a big role for pretty much
draft eligible players... I just think they're going to be especially important for Erne. Same could possibly be said of Drouin, Duclair and Mantha... as a counter-example, MacKinnon's and Gauthier's draft rankings are going to be less affected by those games (all other things kept equal), in my humble opinion, simply because of style.
Q fan, if you hadn't noticed
