Also Myers is better than Bogosian. I liked Buffalo but that poison pill ruins their like ability a lot. This only makes sense if they waive him or use him to acquire another first rounder man Murray..
Yeah I still think you are reaching on the AA prediction. I don't see him becoming a top 6 NHL C. He could be a 3C or MAYBE 2C but more likely pans out as a 2/3 winger in the NHL.
I really only see Larkin and Sheahan as future top 6 C's and neither likely becomes a legit top line C like a Z or Dats. How many teams have won the cup without a premier 1C recently? None - you could argue Boston doesn't have one but they are a different beast. The only way to get a 1C is through the draft and getting lucky. I truly think we need to add one more legit C prospect to the pool to feel comfortable going forward. This is the draft to do it with how deep it is at the C position.
Either way, I don't think I will convince you and you won't change my mind - and thats okay - because at the end of the day you and I aren't the ones making the pick on draft day lol.
I don't think any of those guys except for Larkin ends up a top 6 C at the NHL level. Its an impressive list nonetheless.
AA is a beast dude. He's already getting way more hype than Sheahan ever did.
