Was mostly stationary and generally more of a spectator than being engaged at any point. Mantha was kind of the opposite. He ran around a lot and frequently over commited. I'd rather draft a player with too much energy on the ice and teach him to tone it down and play smarter, than draft a player that i have to convince to move his ass and participate in the damn hockey game. Neither player was particularly effective. Mantha looks A LOT bigger and stronger.
It was just two games. Tough to gather a true overall impression. Charles Hudon was ten times more impressive than either, and considering how old both are for their draft years, I might be tempted to choose Hudon over both, if given the option.
