Just curious as to why you put such distance in potential between Terry and Steel? They’ve played pretty much the same amount of games at the Pro level, they’ve both had big looks (Steel a tad more) with the big club, and had minimal roles for the most part . Steel has 13 more points in only 6 more games Played than Terry. Both scored game winners against teams fighting for a playoff spot before the pandemic stuff started. Point totals aside (which doesn’t say everything about a player obviously) I’d say they both have the same ceiling. Maybe Terry has a tad more vision , Getzlaf-esque, but Steel has the pure scoring threat imo. Who played with better line mates through their stint? Who got sent down to the gulls like a precious jewel to polish to perfection a couple times this season? Maybe management has as much faith in Terry as you seem to have? Steel stayed up and had games against NHL players, maybe not to the success as most of us hoped, but nothing that would dismiss him as a candidate to break through like Terry. I’m hopeful and rooting for both to find their footing consistently, sooner rather than later. They’re both BIG pieces to our future club .
p.s. I am not related to Sam Steel.
