Hopefully the Oil Kings knock off Portland so Lazar gets some national exposure. From watching the WHL final though, whichever team goes to the Mem Cup is gonna be fun to watch against St. John and London (no offense to anybody but it looks like those teams are moving on).
Also, the things that held Skinner back from being ranked higher don't apply to Lazar. I do agree though that like Skinner he's probably more likely to be taken higher than his ranking given his skillset, I just think that by next Spring he'll have passed a few guys in the rankings so if he were to be taken higher than expected he'd be going top 3 with Jones and Mackinnon.
Ebert was a different case though. He had Ellis making him that good.
