Pretty good read. I like what I hear, especially about Calle Anderson and Spelling. Also interesting to hear they were trying to trade up to draft a goalie.
Spelling is interesting. He could make some noise in the future. Good size at 6'2, but he still moves really well. He also got a really good shot and is hard to catch for Ds one on one.

There is only one way to describe him, he is a poor mans Anze Kopitar. Like a top 15 talent in a draft (while Kopitar maybe was a top 5 talent), but who just have not been given as good chance to develop as his peers coming out of Denmark (Kopitar coming from Slovenia). Kopitar went to Sweden when he was 16 y/o, Spelling will be 19 and so forth.
