Oleksiak is efinately bigger. Not so sure he plays bigger though. Still an intriguing prospect. Anytime a guy that size can skate you got something. The guy is a monster.

Siemens though in every report is an excellent skater, and hates to lose physical battles. Especially in front of his net. <--I love when I hear that about a defenseman. They say he takes it personal when someone bumps his goalie. One guide ranked him the number 1 player out of the WHL. He also has offense to his game. Big shot, likes to join the rush at times. For the many tools he brings, I think he is a very intriguing prospect. A hybrid...Compared to Bieksa.

Redline threw the knock on him that he likes to fight but he doesn't win them all. I don't mind that...I like that he's a gamer.

But of course, this team is stacked on the blueline already so I don't think he is the guy. Just saying I wouldn't be the least bit dissapointed if he was.
