with young studs in the NHL right now getting great points(Karlsson,Shattenkirk,Pietrangelo,etc,etc) who is gonna be the next one thats still in Junior or AHL??? I think elliott in the Colorado minors could do it, or Justin Schutlz too... who else? OHL,QMJHL,WHL,NCAA, whatever!..
Joe Morrow could be a dark horse. He looked great on the PP for the Pens in the pre-season, he's earning his stripes playing for a highly-skilled Portland team in the Dub, and his cannon shot could be the missing piece for the Pens power-play:
Malkin - Crosby - Neal
Letang - Morrow
Hard to imagine a situation more conducive to production for a young defenseman than that. Probably a couple years away though.
He has an absolute missile from the point. He's even been compared to Pronger in the offensive zone to those who have watched him. Leads AHL defenseman in goals. He would have more assists but his team has the worst GFPG in the league.
