Philip-MichaŽl Devos (Victoriaville/Gatineau) may also be someone to look at; he led the Q in scoring this season with 114 points and had 93 last season.
During his draft years, he didn't score much and I don't really know why.
He has decent size at 5'11 and isn't a terrible skater or anything IMO.
Despite his point totals, he's not really a skilled player in the sense that he doesn't have any flashy moves or anything.
He's more of a hard worker and a battler.
Andrej Stastny (Vancouver) is someone they could look at too.
He is 20 and has nice size at 6'4 203 lbs. and just crossed the pond to play for the Giants after the WJC.
The only time I really saw him was at the WJC, but he had good point totals for his first season in North America (30 points in 32 GP).
There has been some talk that he isn't eligible to be signed as a free agent, but I think there's an exception.
Depending on the CBA definition of "season", I believe he would be a free agent after the draft if he goes unselected since he played in North America, even if it was only 32 games (I should add, the WHL definition of a season is 25 games).
If he had stayed in Europe, I believe teams would have had to wait until he was 22 to sign him as a free agent.
If you want to try to figure it out yourself, the relevant CBA sections are 8.9b and 10.1d.
I like Stastny from viewings at the pre-tournie games and during the WJC's too. He's got a far bit of chip and chop to go along with solid physical tools and the ability to lay the body. His scoring totals weren't bad -- better than I expected, honestly.
Bakes seems sold on Miele as the guy, from what he's seen of him and talked about. I trust his judgement on these sort of things -- I've seen the kid three times total this year and he's certainly a game little SOB.
