Stefan Noesen is almost being considered a lock by some and Biggs is the same age, is truculent, can PK, and produces at the same rate all while being a first year rookie. Noesen would seem to be regressing if you ask me.
That you Burkie?
Noesen is hands down Plymouth's best player. He might not be as nasty as Biggs, but his offensive upside is better in my opinion. Hockey sense and skating will keep Biggs from being anything more then a 3rd liner in the NHL unless he improves in those areas.
I'm excited about this years edition of teamUSA. Gaudreauby Baker impressed the crap out of me at rookie camp in Calgary this year. He looked slightly better (albeit smaller) than Bartschi and those two were light years ahead of everyone else. I've never seen Gilles play a game, so it will be cool to get a look at him if they give him the games with weaker competition. Sieloff will be interesting too, I think he's a bit overrated, hopefully he proves me wrong.
