I've loved Nurse since the beginning of the year and have been pumping his tires quite a bit. He's flying a little bit under the radar but I really think someone is going to take this kid really high. Like almost top 5 high he is that good. My guess is somewhere between 6-8 wouldn't suprise me in the least.
I loved Reilly last year and this year my guy is Nurse so we'll see!
As for your comparison to Cowen, I like it, but I still think that with his skating, and his mean physical play, Pronger immediately comes to mind in his early days in the NHL.
