I would have been shocked if Cousins made top 30 let alone top 10. I really don't see what so many around here see in him. I don't think his offensive game translates to the NHL level whatsoever. He might serve as a Patrick Kaleta type player though...
I don't think he's a top fifty prospect either, but he's certainly better than a Patrick Kaleta type. Cousins has put up three seasons in the same junior league as Kaleta's that are better than Patrick's best.
