Those goals mean nothing to me...
Spencer Machacek had top5 highest points/min in the NHL but I know he'll never be more than a 3rd liner for the Jets. Small samples mean nothing for stats.
Sven is a good prospect:
The Good: Arguably the most dangerous player in the WHL this year, Baertschi took his game from very good to a whole other level and elevated his stock to that of a top-end prospect. His skating improved from solid to above average, and he displayed great creativity with the puck coupled with his already high-end hockey sense and finishing skill. Baertschi is also a gritty player who gives it his all every shift and works hard in the corners. He's the total package and is ready for the NHL.
The Bad: Size is his only real weakness as he's certainly undersized and the 5'11'' listing is somewhat generous.
Projection: He could be a top line forward.
But he's still a prospect... and IMHO almost every top6 player in the NHL is > a prospect until the prospect proves themself in the big league. (and Kane isn't a lowly top6 guy)
