Skinner personally should be one of our last choices for a forward, but what do I know, im not Gordie Clarke.

Reasoning : Skinner gets away with a lot of stuff in the OHL that just straight wouldn't fly in the NHL. His scoring knack is undeniable it really is but his physique, skating and style of play might be a little iffy. This pick reminds me of a Jason Krog/ Corey Locke kinda deal. Personally I'd rather go with some of what I feel are the "Safer Picks" because I'm not sure all those goals will translate but thats just me...

Of course this kid could explode and be the next biggest scoring phenom also and make me look like a total jackass.
