Honestly, if he continues to develop, I would compare him to Hossa.

Just asking, what was everyone's reactions when we drafted Saad?
I actually liken him more to Ladd as some other posters have already pointed out (I do think his offensive upside is higher though).

As far as my reaction to when we drafted him...I thought he was the steal of the draft and still believe that now. I think him and TT are going to be cornerstones of this team for the next decade and cannot believe the Hawks drafted both at the positions that they were in.
