Hell, I'll take one of those.

He skates better than Souray, too. Long, rangy, big... there isn't alot NOT to like here.

He's certainly no Rafalski, but I agree with those other guys that his offensive upside is through the roof.

I haven't seen enough of Merrill (he hasn't been on the ice long enough) except playing with a crappy Michigan team this year. You guys are right that his value is pretty low, especially for a first rounder... I wasn't thinking there.
