NHL COMPARABLE: Sam Gagner+

UPSIDE: Second Line Center

I realize there are just tons of people who just love this guy. For some reason, whenever I see him play, I see Sam Gagner thought I do expect him to turn out to be better. I think this is a guy who’s had incredible success in juniors but who’s going to find the transition to the pros to be a lot more difficult. There is really no arguing against the numbers, they are phenomenal and have been for years. This is just a gut feeling that he’s just not going to be as good as everyone expects. That said, he should still become a very effective 2nd line center in the NHL if all goes well.
