Haven't read up on guys yet, so no ideas there.

But in general I want speed, speed, and more speed in any forwards picked. Our defensive prospects are pretty mobile (Sbisa, Fowler, Vatanen, Scultz, and formerly Gardiner), but we don't really have the forwards to take advantage of that. And with Selanne and Blake retiring soon, the big club is going to be losing a lot of speed.

Etem and Mcmillan are the only forwards that seem to have skating mentioned as a strength. Palmieri is considered "good," Holland as well. Bonino might be even slower than Parros. So I'd be all for going for the smaller but faster types.
