That is the big ??? IMO. Good skaters but the question is the NA ice surface. If they can adapt then,,,

I talked to a legendary NHL scout this morning btw in an entirely different matter. He was in UFA last week. He really praised Gibson & Jones on US. Said Jones will most likely go #1. JT Miller he thought needs a better jump in his game but said he is a clutch to be a productive NHL regular.
Said Swedes like Arvidsson & Sandberg were lightweights destined for European rinks, but also liked de la Roses game (questioned his hands a little), liked the 2 Finns in Barkov & Rasmus Ristolainen. Plus he really liked a German player (darkhorse & future sleeper) called Leon Draisaitl. Remember that name. He is known for picking up gems in the later rounds this guy Hint Hint...
