Since the third line won't be getting powerplay time, this shows he can still be an effective scoring threat without the benefit of racking up points with the man advantage.
Weeeeeeell, it's Whipper.

After someone drafted Martin St Louis, GBC said there was still a scoring winger more talented available, and I'm fairly certain this is him. (there's only one other guy who it could be). I'm a fan of Kenny Wharram, and I tried hard to make him fit on my lines and in my team strategy 2 picks ago, but just couldn't do it. Quick, tough, good hockey sense and skills. In a 32-team draft (with 8 more scoring RW's required), he would have been chosen 150+ picks ago.
