-EJ is a Chris Pronger, maybe better???
-Staal isn't the best pick at no.2, but the best pick for the Pens
-Even at number 4, Backstrom is the steal of the draft in my opinion. He proved he can play very well with men and he's only going to get better.
-I'm rating Kessel low because I think his attitude will affect his career, but he could end up being a steal if he smartens up.
-I know Frolik was playing with men, but so was Backstrom, I don't have high hopes for him, but you never know.
-Bernier had the best numbers in the draft but I don't think he's the best goalie, LA should have picked Helenius, he was quite a steal by Tampa.
-Lewis was another bad pick by LA for what was still availible.
-I'm very glad Montreal traded down and still got the guy they want in Fischer. Other than that possibly fake rumor that he was an ******* at the draft evaluation camp, everything I've heard about him has been excellant. Positive attitude, top player in his state, natural leader, did very well at the habs evaluation camp among mostly older players who play in leagues higher than high school. I think playing along side of EJ will do him wonders, with his attitude, he'll do what he can to learn and keep up with him.
