Absolutely. Athanasiou is unreal. For anyone that doubts this kids talent, I'd highly recommend catching a couple Griffs games.
I think Mantha will be a good pro, and still has the potential to be a stud, but there's no question that Athansiou has had the much smoother transition from junior to pro, and right now is the more dominant player.
I've been pretty impressed with both Nosek and surprisingly Tvrdon as well...
Watching the game and was just going to mention this. Hooking penalty wasn't all his fault - he was put in a bad position. He's hard on the puck and uses his frame well.
