Leafs don't really have a comparable for Beauvillier. He's a 25-year old former 28th overall pick who's kinda gone up and down in his career as a middle-6 winger. At this point it's arguable that he's not even really earning his $4.15mil AAV. He's almost an older and more expensive version of Kapanen when the Leafs dealt him away.
Raty was picked 52nd overall in 2021 but many thought he'd go in the 1st round. His progression as a prospect seems to be going fine but the ceiling there isn't exactly high. Some potential as a 2nd line guy but more realistically he's a 3C if all goes well. So probably Roni Hirvonen-ish (picked 59th overall '20) with less pre-draft hype.
Thanks CTB. I read else where that the closest comparitive was Kerfoot and Niemia(SP)
