The reason that he isn't getting more hype is the fact of how deep the draft is. Honestly I have him as mid-second round pick right now. Undersized offensive defenceman aren't very coveted unless they have gamebreaking offensive talent. Which I haven't seen from Jordan Subban yet.
Agreed on Jordan. He's getting points, but not really dazzling the way PK did in his rover days. Jordan's game is rather less flashy. I don't think I'd be looking at him until mid-round flyer time... ? Not in the 2nd, at least not for our team.

I'd give Malcolm a good bit of credit on the defensive record for the Bulls as well. He's the best goalie in the OHL, and has to be in the running for best in junior hockey. Alas for how that draft turned out.

Oh yeah... and 5'9" 170 looks accurate for Jordan today to me...
