First off i dont think Crisp is an overager.
Secondly i think Crisp will exceed his draft potential by far.
After most predictions had him at best a 4th line grinder.
I think he will reach that potential and more.
Mccarron as a first rounder should have top 6 potential, but hoping at least he can reach the 4th line grinder status.
I ll be the first to admit that i didnt track mccarron or crisp until we drafted them.
But i truely love crisp now, point production aside , hes a great kid.
I believe the best pick of this draft will be Jacob, might not throw up a crapload of points but brings it every game. Love this pick.
Collburg is collburg, was hoping fir more from him but i still have faith he will turn it around. But if he do turn it around i dont think he will be as valuable to us as Jacob!

I'm feeling hell of a lot better about the Crisp pick than I was, and he's certainly keeping his possibility of being an NHL-quality grinder alive. But what he's doing really is unexceptional, and this is exactly why context is important. He still won't make the NHL if he skates like this.
I really don't know what people expected from McCarron. I heard the same things here about Tinordi in his first OHL season, and though the situation isn't entirely the same, we knew McCarron was a project, when you draft a 6'5" scorer that late in the draft, you need to know what you are getting.
