<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>TheJonSnow</b></div><div>Cheap contract while things are tight for the next few years. Confirms the rebuild IMO. Stan and org seem to be high on him developing young players so goes along with the rebuild. I am not a fan of the extension, just my opinion on the why.</div></div>
I’ll be honest, I took this the same way you did. Rebuilding and developing wise. However, I do have to question how well he has actually developed any players. Who has he left a mark on exactly? Dach? Not really, hawks didn’t even have to develop him. Boqvist? Eh, I can see maybe from the defensive side but offensively it kind of feels like Colliton is stifling him. Nylander? I mean, nope.
As I said, I thought the same way you did. However, as I look at it closer, I just don’t know if I believe he’s that great of a developer. Then again, neither is the entire organization really. On the off chance he does develop them, though, they will be more or less Colliton style players right? Does that exactly set them up to be successful with an actual winning coach?
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>XQOM</b></div><div>Dach had a better first season than Hughes in almost every category (Advanced and regular stats), still very close but having that many arrows is wrong.
You can swap Zegras and Cozens, they are really close.
- Cozens having a 113 point pace in a normal full season (WHL). Better playmaker
- Zegras having 36 points in 33 games (NCAA). Better skater
Both are tearing it up in the WJC, and have strong all around offensive games. This one really is a toss up, both stud risers.</div></div>
You also gotta remember, the trifecta of hughes, Kakko, and Dach had one of the worst statistical rookie years cumulative in the history of the NHL. As such, saying that Dach was better than Hughes by certain numbers isn’t saying much at all. They each we’re bad in their own ways.
Also, Trevor Zegras is a monster, pure and simple. He is BY FAR the best pure playmaker in the 2019 draft class. I truly believe he’ll be the best player in the draft class.
Suffice to say, I’d take Zegras over any player in that draft at present in a redraft.
