The part that I do not like about his game is that he is 6'5'' 210 and he is not physical at all. I would not say that he is soft but he does not know have a mean side.

Mantha....just wow and wow and wow....when he wants it.

One of the game that i saw him play, he was a top 5 for sure. Using his size, working hard, putting the puck into the net.

The other game he was invisible. I see some Wolsky in him. Great talent but how bad does he want it? I would not take the risk to pick him in the top 20.
Awesome report Mike! I was talking to some other LHJMQ followers and they think Mantha could get his act together and become a James Neal type of player, do you ever see his act coming together or will he be Wolski-ish throughout this career?
