I don't think either is going to "wow" at the AHL level this year, tbh. Knapp is pretty good positionally, but obviously lacks pretty severely in rebound control and isn't super quick laterally. Lieu, IMO, is just the opposite -- doesn't read plays all that well to get in position but has much more pure athleticism, at least from what I've seen. Long-term, I think Lieu has the better tools to build off of, but I don't think anyone should have big expectations for either.
