Character will be a key, I don't know much about Monahan and Shinkaruk's character's other than being good workers on the ice, Pulock a little more, Captain already on Brandon as a 18 year old, that in itself tells you the Kings think highly of this kid. Wouldn't surprise me he is high on the Leafs list.
I disagree with the first bolded, and agree with the second.

Having the qualities to become an elite centre in the NHL, along with outproducing any Finnish draft prospect to date in the SM-Liiga is pretty special...

I think Pulock is probably higher on leaf management's list than most of ours. This being because of what you so accurately described above; leafs love good old north american character. If I had to guess management's list it would be:

1. Mackinnon
2. Jones
3. Barkov
4. Monahan
5. Lindholm
6. Shinkaruk
7. Pulock
8. Drouin
9. Lazar
10. Ristolainen
