Don’t get your panties in a bunch. There are plenty of Habs fans in here that think he is the second coming of Paul Coffey. He isn’t. I have seen him described as untouchable. A future All-Star. I have seen arguments that Mete and a 3rd is an overpayment for Hampus Lindholm. That Mete, Lehkonnen, Hudon and 3rd was too much for Brodin and Fiala. The list goes on and on.
He’s not even the Habs best young prospect at defense. Might not even be top 3. Nice problem to have. But still...c’mon.</div></div>
Dahlin and Makar both play second pairing and have averaged under 20 minutes a game. To get specific there are 7 defenceman 23 or under that have averaged over 22 minutes a game this season and one of them is Hronek who plays for the Wings which I think we can agree is done more out of desperation than anything else.
Do I think Mete is the second coming of Paul Coffey? No. Do I think he is untouchable? No. Do I think he is a future all-star? He could very well be, the guy is only 21.
I guess the point I was trying to make is that defenseman rarely get a full time gig in the NHL at 21 years old let alone enter their 3rd NHL season meaning there is still plenty of time for Mete's progression.
