Jeff Gorton was the Bruins interim GM during the 2006 draft. He gave some thoughts on the top players in that draft.

Derick Brassard, C, 6-0, 172; CSR: 4, North America
58 games, 44-72-116, 92 PIMs; Drummondville (QMJHL)

Gorton's Take: "He's a terrific skater with great vision, and with the way the game is played today, he's built for that with his great speed and skill level. He's versatile -- he can play center or wing, he kills penalties, he scores goals."

Lowdown: May have more skill than anyone else in the draft, but still could be a bit of a reach at No. 5.
