One off the top of my head that just barely made the cutoff for this draft is Duncan Siemens - DOB of 9/7/93.
I meant of the top prospects, my bad.
Anyway, I really feel like whoever gets Strome is getting a real gem of a player. He's developing so quickly and has been playing probably the most consistent offensive hockey out of any of the top prospects. He's only behind Couts for PPG among the top players, and I think he has the most potential upside of any player in the draft this year.
So what do I think he'll become? A 1st line centre and with the best career of the draft.
Again, I'm not saying that this is set in stone or that it will happen, but it's what I think.
