For those that have seen a fair amount of Joel Edmundson, I'm curious if he would project favorably to someone like Johnny Boychuk? I would love if he could develop into a really solid top 4 defenseman that brings a huge shot and a mean streak. I was really impressed with Boychuk's game in the playoffs and feel like the Blues lack that intimidation on the blue line that guys like Chara and Boychuk bring. He just nailed Sharp in Game 3 or 4 of the finals and really threw off Sharpe the rest of the game. It seems like Edmundson is the one legit prospect in the system that has some of those aforementioned traits and maybe his offensive game could blossom in the minors like Boychuk's.

Fair comparison or no?
