I not-so-boldly predict that in a couple of years Konrad Abeltshauser will be the next "how did they get him so late in the draft" player on their team.
Is he really that good?
I wish he'd play in the AHL...also, I strongly suspect that Abeltshauser will be traded before he ever becomes a consistent player for the Sharks.
The current defensive core of Burns, Braun, Demers, and Vlasic is fairly set. Then, there is a logjam of players like Abeltshauser, Irwin (who is definitely NHL-ready), Doherty, and Tennyson...
