For his size he was a tough little bugger but definitely 4th line material.
In any case I'm hoping for either for McNeill or Schiefele--edge to McNeill. In the mock draft I did today--Colorado takes Bartschi at 11--seeing him as a complementary player for either Duchene, Stastny and Carolina goes for Khokhlachev hoping he might be this year's Skinner or at least Burmistrov--so both McNeill and Schiefele are around at 15 when the Rangers pick. After first taking Schiefele--on second thought
I take McNeill--just that extra grit.
What do you see his upside being? Would you agree with this Skill-set comparison:
cross between Brooks Laich and Shawn Horcoff
