The forwards, and it might be a little premature on Noebels, might never amount to being more than excellent third liners with some offensive pop and Ghost might not be higher than 2nd pair defensmen. However, when 3 of those players were drafted after the 2nd round, that is very good scouting. Personally, I think Willcox develops into an NHL defensemen too making the pool even deeper.
I'm very high on Taylor Leier. I think the Flyers got a potential Kris Versteeg in him. Just a good all around hockey player with very good hockey sense, speed, and now he's getting a chance to play in an offensive role in Portland. He could also turn out to be a very nice gem.
