It's safe to say not many players in this draft have higher potential than Matt Dumba.
At this point in time I have him still a little behind Ryan Murray as far as top WHL eligible players, but I wouldn't be shocked at all if that changes and flip flops throughout the season.
That's what i mean, Dumba doesn't project out as the best d-man in the draft. How's his body going to hold up in the NHL trying to hit like he does in the dub? Dion Phaneuf lite in my opinion, so a good prospect, but not a #1 prospect. He's already struggling this season up against other teams better players.
I think he's a #5 to #10 pick.
