Mhm. Hopefully him being drafted much higher than 55th as Pominville was means he will be able to get into the league faster than him. In fact he seem to be well on his way. If we look back to the 2001 draft we see a lot of forwards drafted before Pommer that debuted earlier, but he has surpassed them all by now.(Except Kovalchuk and Spezza)

Stephen Wiess, oops Mikko Koivu went 6th(Not saying Pominville is better), but guys like Tuomo Ruutu, Hemsky, Derek Roy, Mike Cammalleri(Seem to have some play-off prowess though), plus a whole boatload of busts.

Edit: Me and Pommer was born the same day, that's why i've followed him while being a Pens fan.
