Never seen him play but that's the impression I get from previous threads like this.
I like the use of that three grade comparison scale. But here are the names I would use to project Mark McNeil:
1. David Backes
2. Jarret Stoll
3. Blair Betts

McNeill has all the tools to top out at as a Backes if he were to continue growing as a player. Scouts have told me in the past though, if the prospect already looks like a 'man', they tend to worry, if he is already close to his ceiling. Unfortunately for Mark McNeil, he has the 'look' of a 25 year old.

Name: Mark McNeill
Number: 9
Position: Centre
Shoots: Right
Height 6'2"
Weight 210
Birthdate: 1993-02-22
Hometown: Edmonton, AB

Wherever he tops out, I have little doubt he'll be a regular NHL pivot in a few years. That likely guarantees him a spot in the mid first round if not higher.
