Anton Gustafsson seems like he will be a late first round steal.
Size, good skater, skill, smarts, grit.
He may not possess the scoring prowess of Tedenby or the blazing speed, but he has everything else. And perhaps as he develops the scoring touch will come.
Yes he is a center, but perhaps one of Dubinsky, Anisimov and Gustafsson could be switched to wing.
Gustafsson seems like a safe pick, plays a sound defensive game using his frame/reach. He plays Center but i'm sure he could be switched to LW as well.
I don't think Ness is unrealistic, he's a real wildcard for some team who thinks that talent will trump size. I think the size issue plays a big part in Ness not getting drafted in the top 20.
