I think we're going to be pleasantly surprised with some of the guys with less exposure. I've had a couple viewings of MacWilliam and Knodel in action, and MacWilliam is definitely farther along, but the ceiling for Knodel is much higher, as a BIG two-way D-man. Knodel will benefit greatly from some face time with Barbara Underhill. When he smooths out the skating, he's going to be a really solid player.
MacWilliam and Knodel will both be 23 this year.

Hopefully going full term in College is going to be the answer for these guys.
