    His brother is 2022 draft eligible Cruz Lucius. Better or worse?

    Way better. Sounds like a 26 yea—err—I mean "14" year-old Dominican ball player.

    Imagine Buffalo drafting Power #1 and he stays in college until he becomes a UFA.

    He probably should go back. Buffalo is resetting. There's no sure-fire immediate NHL player in this first-round from what I've read.

    Who is the last 1st overall pick not to go to the NHL immediately? Lindros?

    Not including Yakupov and Ovechkin whose seasons were interrupted by lockouts...

    Fleury was sent down because the Penguins stunk. Not sure if that counts for you.
    Chris Phillips was the 1st overall in '96 and played the next season in the WHL.
    Bryan Berard was 1st overall in '95 and did not play in the NHL in the 95-96 season.
    Jovanovski played the whole 94-95 run in juniors even when the season resumed.

    This is probably the first time the player is/may be electing not to go to the NHL since Lindros though.

    Hughes and laf should be proof that this should not be an uncommon practice.

    Hughes and Laf are forwards. What do they gain by scoring 3 points a game against junior players for another year, other than lazy habits.

    Gain size, gain confidence, complete their all around game. They arenít suddenly playing Chel on super easy, they still have to compete.

    I donít see how struggling in the nhl is any better.

    No. They needed the NHL. Same with a Kakko. Nothing to learn in lower leagues

    Kakko would have learned nothing in Liiga, and probably little in the AHL. He was already playing Chel on super-easy there - it's just a big jump.

    Laf was scouted as "looking bored" in the Q. He was not eligible for the AHL as the Q actually had a season of sorts.

    This isn't an unknown phenomenon either - Barkov, Hughes, Kotkaniemi, Zadina - it's pretty standard stuff to see 18 or 19 year olds struggle. The difference with Kakko and Laf is that they had to fight not only the level of the game, but the ask of a bottom 6 role.

    Even if it wasn't the "best" call to have them in the NHL, there weren't really options. Kakko playing 1PP and 1RW minutes in Liiga would have been pointless. Laf playing top 6 minutes in Rimouski would have been pointless. Either of them playing the Providence Bruins 20 times would have been pointless.
