What kind of roles are Craig Smith, Derek Brassard and Cody Hodgson going to have this year on their respective teams? Do you see a material improvement in the the production of these young guns over the next year or two?
All three have tremendous ability, but Smith is held back by his team's system and Brassard is held back by his team's quality. Hodgson is your best bet.
Smith needs to have lasting power. He fizzled out after 40 games, which is about what he was used to playing in NCAA.
Brassard could do well if a player like Atkinson emerges. But otherwise he has nobody to play with.
