He's a player who kind of falls into the cracks because he isn't at the level of Ovechkin or Malkin {at this point} but he's higher than Ladd, Barker, etc.

The problem is that people just kind of assume he's going third and that's the end of it, so no one talks about him.

He's a solid two way player with nice size and he does everything very well.

I think that is his biggest strength and also a reason he's not getting a ton of attention.

He's not 6'3 or 6'4 and he's not an offensive dynamo, so he gets overlooked.

Ironically depending on who picks where and how they judge Malkin's concussion, he could even be the second pick in the draft. (Though he himself got one from Dion Phaneuf)

I am not sure he is an NHL center {i like him as a wingman myself}, I'd be very surprised if he isn't at least a solid NHL player.
