I've only seen two Knights games, but it's easy to tell why the Sharks picked Tierney. He's the prototypical Sharks pick: great skater, good size and strength, smart, great defensively, and a notable amount of offensive upside. His not-so-great stats shock me because between the two times I saw him play he hit the post or was totally robbed or linemates didn't finish about 10 times. Really talented playmaker.

I have little doubt that Freddie will make the NHL in a third line capacity. He's done pretty well with what has been asked of him in the AHL, and his skillset is very translatable.

I don't know if Kuraly's ever an NHLer. Just a gut feeling.

All of these kids have third line C tools, and Tierney has a little more upside than that.
