The point was made to show that it is not like Laughton is behind everyone else in his development. If everyone in the 1st 2 rounds were in the NHL and contributing, then we should have a reason to worry. It's BS to say he has proven all he can in Jr. Did he win a scoring title and crush the competition? NO! Did he stand out in training camp? NO! He played equal to Hall. Let him dominate the OHL. Who knows, he might come in and make an impact like Jenner or Scheifele. If his upside is only a John Madden, what the hell is the rush when we have our top 3 centers in place for years.
