It's no less to hang your hat on than with Athanasiou. Teams scout players, teams like players, teams draft players. Fin. And really, we don't know all the reasons the Wings drafted Paterson. The hot second half and Osgood scouting him were reported. But we don't know the rest of the story, in terms of what the Wings see.

Then factor in that drafting goalies is a crap shoot probably more so than any other position, and it's hard to justify rating one who was just drafted over other skaters.
Nah, it's not hard. We're down into the 20s in these polls. All these guys are crap shoots at this point. And I'm only talking about ranking him over a skater from his own draft class, from 3 months ago. Not over other skaters who have had a chance to establish themselves more.

I agree it's not the be all, end all. And point taken on the Russian example (though I don't think it's because they are undervalued, I think it's more because they are more of a flight risk, but that's another discussion), there are exceptions to every rule. However, in this circumstance, with Athanasiou vs Paterson, I contend that draft position holds serve. Now if 3 months from now Paterson is bombing and Athanasiou is putting up crazy points, by all means, bury Paterson behind him. Too early to do so at this point though, imo.

I'm in favor of placing Quine over both, but I can see your point.

Looks like Quine had a decent off-season in the weight room. Now listed at 5'11" 188lbs. on his teams website. That means after this season he should turn pro ready to go from that standpoint. With his frame I could see him getting to 200 lbs, guess I will have to wait and see him again this year, but was amazed at how thin he looked at 180 last season and figured he could add a lot onto his frame.
