I honestly do not think there are 120-150 better prospects in this draft better than Duclair. Whether or not you like his attitude (I definitely don't) or believe he is over-hyped, the guy still has 1st line potential. He is incredibly quick, has a great shot and is an excellent offensive player. If he can grow up a little and develop some of his natural abilities, he projects as a top-6 sniper. Obviously it'd be a risk but you don't pass on this guys upside when you're picking in the 3rd round. Subban also had a "bad attitude", as did Karlsson, E.Kane, P.Kane, Perron etc. The list is very long. Of course, it's just as long going the other way for those that didn't make it. If he's there at our late 2nd our earlier 3rd, he's as good a pick as any IMO.
