Ashton would be a decent consolation prize if you miss on Kassian. He doesn't throw his weight around as much (skating), but finishes pretty darn good as a RW. Best asset is probably his shot and obviously his size (could end up 6'5, 225/230). I thought his stride looked sort of goofy in the Top Prospects Game.
Shore is a gamer. He's got to be a first rounder. Real good with the puck, doesn't float, just plays real hard. Sabres could use a big-bodied center who likes to distribute the puck. I'd love to be in Fargo to see him against a higher level of competition instead of playing against the Mahoning Valleys of the world (who by the way had a really good '10 on their squad - Saad.).
With the C spot a clear need, I'm looking at Ethan Werek also. Right now, I'm probably looking at Werek even at #13 regardless of Central's rankings.
