Brett Howden a late 1st pick from Tampa in 2016 got the center role after this year training camp and Lias was sent down to Wolfpack AHL - one of the most expected NHL ready players in 2017 draft after scout evaluation reports. Lias is a 1st rnd. 7th pick from 2017. So what is Lias current value he had 2 goals in this pre season, and any NHL team interested to trust him to play a top 9 role and enjoy the thoughts to invest in him since he can play a center role in NHL? Because the New York management don`t let him get a chance to succeed since they expected him to carry a line with sometimes none NHL players in this year training camp and in pre season games.
