So much is made about the size of some prospects I think the more about playing the game of Hockey gets lost.
I didn't have Skjei rated too much lower than #28, but I had both of those guys rated much earlier. While I like him as a prospect, I think the Rangers might be getting a little too enamored with this "big guy who can skate" mentality. Yeah, McDonagh and Kreider both fit that mold, but they were also very solid players in their own right. Nieves and Skjei are great skaters, but they're much bigger projects, IMO.
