I know BCF is super high on him, and honestly it's probably that I didn't know enough. The article states he MIGHT not be a superstar defender but a top 4 puckmover who can play on the pp. He can skate well, read the play well and is HIGHLY competitive. His defense they stated is "reasonably well". I just didnt like the comparison to Petr Svoboda.

With the 41st pick, I'd take Ian McCoshen. Said he has the skill to be a "work-horse" defender. 20-30 minute type of player. He won't provide a lot of offense, but will be a guy you can play against other team's top defenders. I guess I am leaning towards being able to draft two defenders and playing them side-by-side. With the 2nd pick if Morin is still around I'd take him also.
I like Josh also But really am on the Sam Morin train now big time! at 41 I select Dillon Heartherington D this 6'3" kid is hard to play against. With our thrid pick I take hard playing RW John Hayden 6"3". With our 4th pick I grab D Jared Hauf 6'5" another pisser to play against.
