Trust me, there are a lot of other WHL teams that would trade more than just their first round pick for him. I would think a first and a second or third would be a more fair trade. Nothing against the Benson kid whatsoever, great player and will be a great player but I just happen to believe Barzal is an exceptional player. Just my opinion - not saying it's right or wrong.
Barzel has lead everything since he was 7 or 8. He is leading the MML in scoring this year with 95,96,97, with a team that is not very good. We will not see anything like him in Western Canada for at least 5 or 6 years. No one is even close to him. He is following RNH is more ways. MB would make any WHL better the moment he walked on the ice. Benson is not where Barzel was last year.
