The only person who has any right to comment in this thread is Duke Silver because he had the good sense to re-post his comment following the draft.
That being said, not one player being mentioned here is getting actual NHL time, and Percy had a severe knee injury last season that delayed his development. Without that knee injury, he might be on the WJC roster and people would be going ga-ga over him and Rielly.
Biggs is a power-forward build. He will take until at least 2014-15 to grow into his body and even then may take another year or so to learn to use it properly before joining the NHL roster.
Everyone needs to take a step back and wait before making definitive decisions on the quality of the draft picks.
