What can anyone tell me about Mantha, Burakovsky, and Guathier? I'd kill to be just a bit higher and have a shot at Barkov or Drouin but there appear to be some fantastic center and winger options in the top 15.
Burakovsky has great upside. He's a really good playmaker but is perhaps more of a shoot-first player. Excellent skating and speed. He has played center quite a lot on his junior team but I think he should be viewed as a winger. Consistency has been an issue for him this season but he is more involved in the games now and scores more points than he did to start the season. His father was one of the greatest talents to ever come from Sweden but he was known for being extremely lazy on the ice and in the gym. André works a lot harder but he is not great defensively and he often tries too hard.
