I see 2 guys having what it takes to make it to the NHL in their CHL prospects:
Zharkov because he puts up points, is big, and is also defensively responsible (reportedly). I see him turning into a solid 3rd/4th liner. And Musil as a bottom-pairing d-man.
And that's my view as fairly high expectations. I don't actually think Musil will make the NHL permanently, and the verdict on Zharkov is still out.
Not looking good to me.
Already judging the 2010 and 2012 drafts? Way too soon...
