Not sure why he's constantly being talked about as a top 4-5 pick.
- Darnell Nurse reminds me a lot of Duncan Siemens. Both big, mean and great skaters. Could see some teams liking Darnell in their top 10.
- For me, Seth Jones was far and away the best player on the ice during the top prospects game. Dominant at both ends.
- Other players who stood out for me were: Erne, Zadorov, Horvat, Martin, Jarry, Petan, Bowey, Morin, Bailey, Subban and Lazar's left hand.
You obviously don't watch many 67's games, that much is clear.
Monahan is often the best player on the ice for both teams. He control's the tempo of the game extremely well, he's got a great shot, tremendous vision and elite 3 zone play. That's why he's ranked so high.
