Coyle produced big time on the most stacked offensively team in the CHL but I think most junior guys that size that were fist rounders would score at that rate with those guys

I'm not saying Sheahan is better, just that theyre comparable but I'm wondering what the difference is between the 2 that makes one get so much attention? What am I missing?
How so?

I don't know much about Sheahan, but I always here that Coyle's game is very "translatable" to the NHL, so maybe Sheahan's isn't?

Not sure, haven't seen too many Riley Sheahan games.
