Those who hold a more "reserved" outlook re. MSC's prospects as a future NHLer put greater weight to the fact that he slipped all the way to 4th round. I think if he was picked higher (say 2nd round) - his results and progress since the Rangers drafted him would be viewed in a more positive light. Because from all available reports MSC has been progressing exactly as it's been hoped / expected of him.

Edit: for comparison reference I used Thomas and how he was viewed as untouchable after his excellent 1st season after being drafted and where he slipped after he struggled in the following year (no longer untouchable but still a very solid prospect). On the other hand MSC actually build on in his second year producing with lesser talent around him, improving defensively and having more impact in the play-offs. However, he is viewed as a lesser prospect than CT after two junior seasons (for both) since being drafted.
