Maybe I'm wrong, but my sense of Monahan is that he projects to a 2C-type role (in other words, the same as Schenn and Couturier). A good two-way game, but not elite offensively by any stretch.

Of all the players who seem reasonably likely to be taken in spots 1-7 or so, he's the one guy that I think I'd have trouble getting excited about.
