Same applies to Mallet.

Transition from junior to pro is never a sure thing. Some guys have the size, the skating, and everything else and yet they just never make it because they miss the one thing that nobody noticed.

We're about 6 or 7 months removed from that draft, making any sort of judgements about any of these prospects is completely ridiculous.

So far he doesnt and the 2010 1st you have compared him to is Austin Watson.

Currently in his 1st pro season he has as many goals as mallet has games.

Severson is a full 2.5 years younger than Mallet.

His development from draft year to post draft year has been tremendous.

I like mallet as a prospect, but I still wanted Severson, and would still draft Severson over him.
