The others are safer bets for 3rd/4th line duty.
All of these players would seem to fall into the 3rd/4th round area.
Iíd like to think that Donskoi has some potential to develop into a top-6 forward, because puck skills are the thing that separates him from many other prospects. On the other hand Donskoi is far from a safe bet for 3rd/4th line duty. He doesnít have the best possible mentality for a checking role, his skating isnít that explosive on a straight line, he isnít exceptionally strong physically, doesnít hit much and has quite a lot to learn defensively.
