Josi - I haven't seen anyone here mention that he went on the longest points streak by an AHL D-man in 3 years. Guy can skate like the wind...something that sets him apart from the other Preds d-men prospects I've seen. Which is also something I think the Preds lack on the backend in the bigs...

Latta - Now Captain of the Storm, don't count this guy out as a future 2nd liner. He finished 1st an OHL Western coaches poll for faceoffs, and 2nd for stickhandling (3rd last year). Every time I check a Guelph scoresheet, Latta has a PP assist. No reason he couldn't centre 2 talented wingers....

Budish - If he can get past the knee injuries, this guy could have a skillset similar to the current Todd Bertuzzi. Similar mobility, not a great shot, but soft hands and near impossble to muscle off the puck...and Bert's defense has improved since his Canucks days so its not a huge stretch....
