Huberdeau really Uber? Landeskog to Languish?

I thought this might be of interest. Here is a list of every forward in the top 40 NHL scorers for 2010-11 that played fwo years in Juniors prior to being drafted. The stats provided are for the year PRIOR to their draft year. A lot of people look at a player's stats their draft year and drool but a player with consistent production (that improves) who end up being some of the best. No forward has been left out (unless they didn't play for a Junior club until their draft year or after being drafted). You should notice that the bigger "power" forwards generally didn't have huge years but the skilled forwards did. I have also included a few of the top forwards for this year's draft and their stats for the year PRIOR to this season.

Perry  67-28-31-59

Stamkos 63-42-50-92

Iginla 48-6-23-29

2011 Prospects:

RNH 67-24-41-65

Huberdeau 61-15-20-35

Couturier 68-41-55-96

Landeskog 61-24-22-46

Strome 61-8-19-27

McNeill 68-9-15-24

Puempel 59-33-31-64

Rattie 61-17-20-37

 

So when there was a lot of talk about this being a weak draft a few years back, you can see by their production why there may have been some concern. This year went a long way to opening up a lot of eyes... especially with a lot of the "power" forwards stepping out.
