Otherwise I think it was a pretty good list. I would probably have McGinn in there somewhwere myself. From what little I've seen of the Phantoms this year, and also from the prospect camps, I really like his compete level.
McGinn is 21, but I just had to give Brown the nod. The organization really likes him, and I don't foresee McGinn's game ever translating to a top 9 role. He has the upside, but I'm not sure it's enough.
Where Scrabbles is concerned, I think he's solid defensively. Maybe we've been watching different things. He's not the best defensive player, but he makes up for a lot of his own lapses with speed and compete level.
