Definitely an A or A+. Habs did an excellent job of holding steady and letting their guys fall to them.
Galchenyuk was the obvious pick if he was there. Could end up a #1 center, at worst will be a great #2. Another year in the OHL to dominate and be without Yakupov is what he needs, and we'll all have a better grasp on him in a year.
Collberg at 33 is an absolute steal. If there was a forward run instead of a D run he very well could have gone in the top 12. He's a surefire top 6 sniper IMO.
Thrower with Nashville pick is extremely solid. He'll be an NHLer, somewhere between a great 2nd pairing guy, or a solid bottom pairing guy. 2 way type with tons of toughness.
Bozon is somewhat of a boom or bust. The fact he was a PPG player his first year in NA tells you that he has talent, and when you watch him you see that he has all the ingredients to be a top 6 forward. Needs to develop more physically though.
Vail is a safe pick, and looks like a good bet to be a good bottom 6 type forward, and after getting Galchenyuk, Collberg, and Bozon that was a bit of a need.
Hudon I didn't see much of but sounds like a boom or bust type and he's a Montreal native.
Nystrom is intriguing.
