The people who think this is good think this is the same seto from SJ. He isn't. Not close either. If you trade Despres, its for a difference maker. Seto isn't.
You're not getting a true "difference maker" forward for a prospect that has potential.

Seto is also not htat bad of a forward. Let's not forget just how bad Minnesota's offence is. He potted 19 goals last year on the worst offensive team in the damned league. Minnesota's top line wass centered by either a 3C or a career AHL C for almost a third of the year.

A few stats never show the truth. You know of, and believe in your prospect, so you are giving him greater value than he actually has. Seto is not known to you, and you are making judgements based on a few stats.

I understand, and think it's great to love high potential prospects. Minnesota loves Granlund, but even his current trade value is limited because of his lack of experience.
