But his offence may not be enough to carry him. Would be scary good if both develop into top 4 guys for the Red Wings.
Thats pretty much how all wing fans feel. If Sproul hits his potential its the sky, but hes really risky. Ouellet looks like a very safe bet to be a good NHLer, maybe even a number 2 dman but he just doesnt have the skill set to make him that absolute stud offensive guy. Maybe in a couple years Sproul and Ouellet will be the second pairing behind Kronwall and Smith
