Interesting. I guess you've got to see Hughes play on a nightly basis to truly appreciate him.

He's certainly developed into a solid OHL defenseman, but I certainly wouldn't consider him an NHL prospect. I remember watching Methot play with London and he impacted the game in more obvious ways than Hughes does. Even though Methot didn't put up huge offensive numbers, I remember him jumping up in the play at times and moving the puck effectively. I was always waiting for him to breakout offensively. He was also a much more physical player. When he played, he was one of the most feared stay at home guys in the league.

To each their own I suppose.
