As far as Haula, I think he's the most creative offensive player on that Gopher team. However, he doesn't have enough in other aspects of his game to ever see NHL ice on any sort of consistent basis.
I see Haula as a lot of Erik Christensen. Good hands, decent vision, but I really think he'll wilt against stronger, more physical competition.
I'd love to be wrong, though.
