You have good speed in your top 6, but it's hardly going to be "lambs to the slaughter" like you insist.
So speed doesn't matter? A Derian Hatcher type will handle Bobby Hull no problem? That's just absurd troll logic that implies that no defense and goalie drafted will have any problems with any forwards...
Abel is easily a better first liner than Fedorov is, especially when you consider Abel's playing at the weakest forward position for depth, and Fedorov at the best for depth.
Abel was a center for his 8 best seasons. His best LW season is 9th overall among his seasons. And guess where he's stuck in here?
Not to mention that his offensive output needs to be taken with a massive grain of salt, considering his linemates.
