I see Lazar as a future captain in the NHL and the type of core player that wins you a Stanley Cup. The reality is, I see him going in or near the top ten.
It would be a huge turn of events if Lazar provided more offense at the NHl level than Brown, Brown was the much better offensive player to this point in both careers, compare the numbers.

Brown had a ton more assists and led his team by almost 20 points his darft year, no comparison.
