Effort issue draftees:
Kaspar
Bernier
Seto
Wishart

It is very typical for big players to have effort issues because they can dominate with size alone when playing in junior or equivalent. It only becomes a problem when they face stiffer competition and by then it is too late to develop the work habits.
I had a feeling that you might say so. I'm curious; what is your opinion on how Getzlaf turned it around? He slid in the '03 draft because of perceived lack of effort. He was a big dude, just like Mantha. He sure as hell turned it around.

Also, holy mother of Jonathan Drouin. I'd kill to get him. Honestly, I don't think you can go wrong at first overall this year, between Jones, Mackinnon, Drouin, even Barkov.
