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.
Hedman's basically a Pronger clone without the stupid plays. He's around 6'6, and excels in all aspects of the game. I'm sure some team will still take Tavares over him, but that's only because goal scorers are at a premium.
