He never put up great numbers until he was among the oldest guys in his junior league. Barrie at least showed he was differentiated against kids of similar age. For me, they both have upsides in the 40-50 range.
Fair enough. A 30-goal scoring defenseman tends to garner attention even in his senior year. I'm still a big Barrie believer (and owner) but I still think that if Elliott were to make it it would be because he's scoring a ton. Barrie, in my mind, is a sure fire NHL player but won't see the same upside that Elliott could reach. Based on ownership, I hope I'm wrong!
PS - don't think it was just angus who was high in this kid, he's been a pretty popular player across the boards, if my memory serves me right.
