It's a Gormley influenced pick for sure being a teammate for 2 years, but Melindy has an incredible ceiling. He's gotten better every night I've watched him, and especially once Gormley was traded, like 76ftw said, he's quickly developed into a top defenseman in quite literally half a season.

Great skating, great defensive awareness and puck handling, not overly offensive but we already have Gormley, Yandle and Rundblad for that. I would compare him maybe to Brent Seabrook.

I really like this pick. I was hoping we might get him but I didn't think he'd be going this early TBH.
