Why do all these prospect vids have absolutely awful metal soundtracks underneath? I want to watch this kid play hockey, not hear from some 3rd rate club band.
And based on what I've seen, I wouldn't be opposed to the Flames taking him; he seems to be a decent skater with good instincts on finding the soft spots in coverage. If he's Getzlaf 2.0 that's great.
One thing I do like is that he definitely doesn't appear to be a product of his team. He was the second-leading scorer on the Raiders, and only five points behind a guy who was playing as an over-ager. Everyone who was near him on the team in scoring was at least a year older, and he was better than them.
I'm now torn between McNeill and Saad. I'm gonna have to throw my support behind the Flames taking McNeill though, because at this point, we need big skilled centers more than anything.
