My expectations for Ferraro are high, and I expected him to be at around a PPG this season.. And he has 35 points in 37 games.. I'd say he's doing just fine at the level he's at right now.. McCollum on the other hand has moved on to pro hockey and has performed well below expectations both in the AHL and even the ECHL, so he's stock has dropped..

Its hard to say how Ferraro will perform when he turns pro, but for now, he's doing just fine in the WHL and thats all we can ask for at the moment, while McCollum is struggling.. Its obviously possible that McCollum can turn things around, but for now, I'd take my chances with Ferraro..

Sounds like a team to me
Ha, I thought about this after posting my comment on cloning. And my first thought, being completely 100% serious, was "well they'll need to find a way to monkey with the DNA so they get three right-shooting Lidstroms and three left-shooting Lidstroms".

It seems like I have far too much time on my hands but I swear that really isn't the case.
