I'm not forecasting Boucher as a bust, especially since this is just his second OHL season, but I think it's important to temper expectations a little.
I'm with you, was just pointing out lots of people scored lots of goals back then, I'm sure there were other 16 year old scoring phenoms then, too, that went on to stink in the WHA or NHL.
Comparing Boucher in any way to a guy who was drafted 15th overall never made much sense to me. We have to see what he can do in the AHL before we really start to know what he might be made of, IMO.
