    It would be a whole another story if he was from NA. Any prospect coming out of Europe has to be borderline generational in order to let the pre-hype secure their position as the first overall. Dahlin for instance makes a great example (although the competition was kind of slim that year). It's a lot easier for any North American to "close the gap" with such a huge advantage in exposure.

    So yeah, nothing's set in the stone. It's probably too soon to even assume with reasonable certainty that Räty ends up as a franchise type of a center. Although I would say right now he's in that trajectory the very least. Didn't follow up on him enough last season to know better but he was simply brilliant @ Hlinka.

    I am a Canadian married to a Danish woman, and we live in Denmark - I live 30 minutes from where Almquist used to play, and I used to coach the 7-8 year olds, so id just stay and watch him play.

    From my POV Fabian Lysell should be up there in the top 3. Not saying that he will be almost 2 years from now, but right now I think that he possibly is the best of them all.

    Sure looks like Huck wasn't wrong about L'Heureux so far. Already playing on Moncton's 1st line. 6 pts in 4 games
