Spoke to fiend who is a senior amateur scout for NHL team: His take on Cozens is he is good player with definite chance to be a good second line center in the league. He is big, good skills, very good skater, and can make plays at top speed. I have been very hesitant to get on Dylan bandwagon, but was happy to hear this. FYI: there are only 10-15 true first line centers in the league. When the scout says he could be a good second line center that is a big compliment. Like saying a pitcher could be a number two starter. There are only 5-10 true number one starters in baseball. The aces. Second line centers can play in any situation, and will be among top 20% scorers depending on PP time.
