Depends on who else is available at the time...

Skinner has great goal scoring numbers (70 this season alone - regular season and playoffs combined) and fantastic puck skills, but has a knack floating, but doesn't really have any other outstanding qualities. The two biggest things hurting Skinner's draft stock are is size (5'11", 187) and his lack of speed...things that aren't likely to change much...

Don't get me wrong, Skinner is a straight up goal-scorer and that is definitely a need for the organization, however as a one dimensional goal-scoring center...I'm not so sure that he's going to necessarily be the highest rated player on our draft board when our pick comes around...personally though, I think he'll be gone by #18...
