As it stands Ebert is better then Murray and Reinhart, that could obviously change, but I am talking about going #1 overall, and Murray is a bit to small to do that. I doubt Murray goes as high as he is rated, but his skill set is lights out. He is very entertaining to watch and I hope he continues to grow some by his draft. Though his numbers are down this year.
It is going to be an amazing year for dmen as kids like Jacob Trouba and Max Iafrate could be making tons of noise as well come draft time. Ebert is the all around version of Cam Fowler, whatever reasons led to Fowlers drop, Ebert does not have.
EDIT: Last I saw Murray he looked pretty small, but I guess he isnt as small as he looks....just went by visual with Murray and not what he is listed at...if that is believable??
Guys, i'm throwing in another d-man name who will be a first round pick in 2012, Michael Matheson from Montréal.
He is now playing with the Lac St-Louis Lions in Midget AAA as a 16 years old. Does not want to play in the Q for now and maybe forever
(his rights are owned by the Shawinigan Cataractes).
He is the best skating d-man i've seen, in terms of gliding, since Paul Coffey.
He has a pro wrist shot, precise, with great velocity, great release, he hides that wrist shot so well, has a very good slap shot.
Can be physical if he has to, blocks shots, takes control of the game in his zone, and in all three zones, for that matter, because he is such a great puck rusher.
He does it all.
That 2012 draft will be indeed something pretty special in terms of d-men. Can't wait !
