He's 22 for pete's sake..! Write him off in 10 years when he's Ben Eager, not now when he could be anything in between the players above that all turned outbetter than they looked at 22.
Those be some bad comparables. Not even remotely good comparisons.

None of these guys were drafted 13th overall.

Malone was a 4th round pick, Clowe was a 6th round pick. They carved out solid careers for themselves for late picks. Not a single one of these players was taken higher than a 3rd round pick, lol...are you freaking serious right now?

Riddle me this, how many of these guys also come with the resume of Kassian? With his black marks as a Junior and now as an NHL'er before the age of 23?
