Zack Torquato in Erie...helps or hurts?

I'm curious to hear what folks have to say about Torquato now that he is in Erie. Does the move help or hurt him? He is playing on a top line in Erie, and in more situations as well...but Saginaw has a chance to do really well this year. So does it help in his development to play for a better team, or to play in more situations on a top line? He is certainly producing more in Erie...but I'm curious what others think.

Also, any thoughts on his draft ranking? He was originally thought to be a low 1st rounder...but hasn't shown up on any lists since the early season.

2006-07 Regular Season Saginaw Spirit 22 10 13 23 -1
2006-07 Regular Season Erie Otters 11 6 6 12 +4

His production hasn't really increased yet, but I think the added ice time will get him drafted in a better position. Torquato has big potential.

the move is great for him. he'll get a lot more ice time and on a weak team so he will be depended on to carry the team more which is always good.

He was originally considered a mid-late 1st rounder, i see him going in the late 1st round or early 2nd for sure
