What is your take on him?
I don't know if I'd call him Brendl, he's not a dynamic scorer who floats.

Right now, Nemisz looks like a poor man's Rick Nash to me (good call on that one). He hasn't put all the pieces together, but he's a 6'3 foward who can do a little bit of he just has to do it all a little more often.

Anyone drafting Nemisz is drafting "potential" with the hopes that he can figure out his game, bulk up and maybe become a Nash or a Glenn Murray. Heck, at the very least he should be a Mark Bell. But again, there are a lot of question marks and that's why he's a mid to late first rounder and not a top 10 pick.

Personally, I would love to get Eberle. My gut tells me he's going to go in the teens, but something tells me he is going to be a really solid if unspectacular NHL'er.
