Does the FOW aspect boost Little up enough to earn him a starting spot?
Gosh... that's a big bump, from 69th to top 24.
Olli Jokinen is also going to steal a lot of FOW this year from him.
Last year, Little was a consensus #1C in Winnipeg (Burmistrov, Antropov, Wellwood all took turns TRYING to be the #2C).
He won't be on the dot for as many draws this year as last year.
Anyways, all that said... I do agree Little is a nice end-of-draft pick.
That's fine. Well, to be more accurate, as I suggested a bench spot, top 36. But regardless, I was just suggesting that a player like Little, could have value to boost in that category if he's weak in it. We could substitute him with someone else better with wing eligibility who could be had late and takes faceoffs.
We at least agree about late round value.
