Wedin won't crack the lineup. The guy has a small shot at making the NHL IMO. Kubalik has a much better shot but top 6 role is a reach for a player of his caliber; put it another way, Kahun is a better player hands down and he has trouble cracking a top 6 role.
I think Wedin can crack the lineup. I mean look at IceHogs forwards roster. I mean, there is not much there, and when it comes to potential top 6, forget about it.
Kurashev is the only guy who might have top 6 potential in a year or two, and even bottom 6, we are talking Hagel, Entwisle? Barrat in college? that is all.
Wedin played with grown ups in SHL whole year and scored at over 1/2 goals per game, in a tough to score league. Have intensity and can play 200ft game. If he wants the spot, he'll get a chance at it.
Kubalik has pretty much everything, shot, pass, speed, hands, the question mark is his intensity, but supposedly its there.
Is Kahun better player? I don't know what better means? Is he as shifty as Kahun, no he is not. But he does have better shot by a mile and perhaps a bit faster too and bigger. I actually think they will play together for few games at least and if CHI gets Hayes (hope not) that might be your 3rd line, that could be as dynamic as your 2nd. Kubalik-Toews-Kahun another option, depends who CHI acquires.
