MISQUOTE. They were talking about Jordan, not Jared.

There's a reason why nobody's talking about the brother of 3 of the best young stars in our game. If he were Jimmy Smith he'd be a 6th rounder.

Think Wayne Primeau, but a little more timid. Any GM that takes Jared in the 1st 2 rounds is an idiot. It's even questionable that Jared can even make it to the NHL with the way he skates right now.

Max potential: 3rd line checking forward, 20 goals.
Realistically: 4th line checking forward

If you want to take a guy in the 1st 2 rounds based on his bloodlines, pick Toews, or McRae in the 4th. Hell, even Brett Hextall will probably be a better NHLer than Jared Staal.
