I'm just not sure who else they will use if one of these guys don't make it. Barring a trade, there's very little left in free agency that will help and somebody has to take the role.
And not just because of their strong two-way play, but both kids boast a physical advantage over the likes of Schroeder and Santorelli. Much has been speculated on Kellan Lain as well, but I would be surprised if he made the cut ahead of BoHo and BG. These two possess a far more complete game than anyone else in the system, where their age and experience is the only thing holding them back, it would seem.
