Couturier doesn`t count in this category. He had way better stats as a 17/18 yo than Rakell have as an 19 yo. I know it`s only statistics, but i believe you have to score more than PPG as an 19yo if you want to make NHL right away.

No matter how developet his 2 way game is, if you can play in the NHL, you should dominate the juniors. By scoring pointsa also.

O`Reilly is a bit different case, though. He surprised many. I don`t think Rakell have that in him. I wish i`m wrong on this, though.

This all is based on stats, i know. But i`ll hold on on my opinion, that Rakell have to grow a little each year in points. No matter how good he is defensively.
