Who do you think has the better offensive upside?
maybe someone could throw smid in there as well..... i drafted him 10th overall in my hockey draft, thelen went 7th, and mezsaros went 11th right after smid.....
thoughts? best offensive guy? how far off of the NHL for each player?
I really like all three of these young guys. I feel they will all grow to be big time contributors to their respective teams. I believe that Smid will be the first to break into the NHL, possibly this upcoming year, followed by Meszaros, and then Thelen. With D men it is very difficult to guage how these guys will learn the game and take the proper steps to fix their short comings. My gut feeling is that Meszaros will be the best all around D man of these three. I think that Thelen has the greatest offensive upside and Smid will be a cornerstone for Anaheim for years to come. All three have offensive potential and if used in the right situation could prosper.
