Brayden Schenn was a top prospect, but was projected to be an elite 2nd line center or above average 1st line center, which is great but no superstar.
Agreed...I've made the a similar assertion. When the organization overrates their players like that it's a disservice to both the fans and the actual players. Schenn is not going to be elite but he will be very good like Richards and Carter were for most of their time here..
