Really, Hedman over Tavares? I have heard of Hedman, which is saying something since I do not follow prospects as closely as some, but there seems to be a lot more buzz about Tavares. Also Tavares has, I believe, been breaking many of Gretzky's records in the OHL? How does this Hedman guy compete with that? Not knocking the guy, but curious.
And there should not be two players named Schenn in the top ten of two consecutive drafts. Too confusing!
edit: I hope Rajala can succeed at the NHL level at his size, he sounds like his potential and style could be reminiscent of Paul Kariya who was fantastic in his prime.
