The two Swedes will have NHL-size but are currently underwhelming on the Allsvenskan stat-sheet, a la Sebastian Collberg last year; while the two 17-y/o undersized Finns have put up impressive numbers akin to Armia's current stats. Slepyshev is a talented KHL over-ager who went undrafted in June. Harper's still on a poor Erie team, but his numbers will continue to improve, even more so as McDavid adjusts to OHL play and feeds him more open passes.
The only chance we'll be high enough to draft Shinkaruk is if the entire season is lost and we get a good selection in the lottery.
