You're severely underrating Niederreiter. Just because he had a bad year in the NHL at the age of 19, doesn't mean he's all of a sudden a terrible prospect. If you put Etem in the NHL last year, I would guarantee he'd have a hell of time producing too. Nino wasn't ready for the NHL, and it was a stupid decision by the Isles. He's still only 20 years old, he has lots of talent and upside, and can very well be a very good player in the NHL in a few years.

Patrick Maroon is 24, slow, with limited upside. Maroon had a good year in the AHL last year, but it's the AHL. Jason Krog was an amazing AHL player too, but he still was a well below average NHLer. I'm not saying Maroon can't be a decent NHL hockey player one day, but comparing him to Niederreiter is crazy.
