St. Croix. The guy put up 105 points as a 19 year old in the WHL. The size thing is being very overused and it isn't true. Ryan Callahan is 5'11 200. AS a grown man, St. Croix has the chance to be around 195 to 200 as well. We don't look at Cally as being small, so why should we do the same with St. Croix? His body type is that of Claude Giroux, plays a similar style as well. I think he gets overlooked here, by a lot of people. Skjei was a first rounder, but at this point in time, he's behind St. Croix in development. I also believe his ceiling is higher as well. St. Croix has the chance to become a 1C, more likely to be a 2C. Don't know how Skjei is going to play in the NCAA. Too many unknowns for me to put him there, but more upside than the others mentioned that he is next for me after St. Croix.

Add Lindberg. At a young age showed he can play at good level in the 2nd best league in the world, but isn't consistent enough to stick around. Not too many, besides to picks usually do.
