<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Lenny7</b></div><div>Agreed. I don't know why, but I feel like Byfield is going to break a few Kings fans hearts...I just don't see him being a superstar. Should have a solid career, but to put him above Matthews (Who has put up insane goals per game numbers so far), Point (Who just keeps getting better and better), and Jack Eichel is a bit of a stretch. I mean, Barkov is only going to be 30 at that point as well...
I just feel like the list has a pretty significant recency bias. To assume that 3 picks from the 2020 draft will be the top 3 LWers as 23 year year olds is probably pretty off the mark. When you look at this years draft, yes, it was absolutely strong, but I don't see anyone other than Laffy jumping into the top 4 or 5 by then.</div></div>
right, I mean his ceiling is PLD. If you are saying PLD isn't making the list, why should he.
I totally agree with that.
I honestly don't think he will even hit PLD level. But we'll see.
He has a lot of knocks against him. And the slow 1st step isn't helping him in a speed game. 6'4 is a lot to move. if you don't have the speed at 18-19 years old, you aren't going to have it in your 20s.
