Not that it's necessarily going to happen, but there's lots of parallels between a pre-draft Eberle and Klimchuk.

As for Baertschi - very similar package to Eberle and was brought in 2nd year post-draft with mixed results in CGY (0.5 point/game).

He's about to head into his 3rd post-draft season (which is the same time we brought Ebs in) and should likely see a fixed role in the top-6 similar to Ebs. No reason to be surprised if he puts up Eberle-like rookie numbers (40-50pts in top-line role).

As for Monahan - I have no idea what to expect, especially if CGY wants to bring him in as an 18-year old. I'd expect Couturier like results.
