EagleBelfour 06-30-2013 07:12 PM

Ezpz 06-30-2013 07:12 PM

5'10" I thought.

Good way to mix things up. Like Collberg the only reason he was available was his size. Ridiculously skilled. Obviously people here will hate the size, and it's a definite weakness, but considering so many are obsessed with Drouin...size can be overcome, sometimes.

A small winger with good scoring-instincts, Lehkonen is very good with the puck and has great stickhandling. He is highly competitive and while often physically at a disandvantage, Lehkonen is not afraid to enter battles in corners. He doesn't have a great top-gear but is a smooth skater with good technique. He must gain strength and add power to his skating and once his physique is at an acceptabale level, Lehkonen can be a major offensive threat and utilize his excellent hockey sense even better.

5'10". Sounds a bit like Collberg, don't you guys find?

Tim Wallach 06-30-2013 07:13 PM

I wanted Bailey or Bowey. Damn previous three picks.

A skilled Finn is usually a character kid who works. Can't be too disappointed. Pickins are getting a bit slim. Some guys with very limited upside starting to go.

Impossible Glory 06-30-2013 07:14 PM

Really talented guy, BPA. Nice pick imo.

iane 06-30-2013 07:14 PM

probably the second best pick so far, hate the 25th and 34th

HabsGER 06-30-2013 07:14 PM

I can't express how happy I am about this pick. Great kid, high offensive upside, tho he really needs to gain some strength and weight. :handclap:

Somewhere in between, around 5'10.

Jack DiBiase 06-30-2013 07:14 PM

From the same city and same team as Saku! :naughty:

5'11, he has grown quite a bit in past year.

Stive Morgan 06-30-2013 07:14 PM

How tall is he? I've been seeing ranging heights from 5'9 to 5'11.

Hockey's future has him at 5'11''. Other sites between 5'9'' and 5'11''.
Blame RDS all you want, maybe he's just growing :)

ccgg 06-30-2013 07:14 PM

Finally a players with high potential ! I love this pick !
