He is going to need a couple of years (likely 3 to be honest) to develop and some have him listed as a 20th (or a little later) pick in the first round so unless JB returns us a 1st rd pick he may not be there for us unless we get creative but he is THE perfect fit for us.

A real character kid who is a natural leader and a hard player. He fades in and out at times but to me that is no different than all but the very elite in this draft and also because he tends to get into battling when at times he should stick and move.

One more year of jrs then MCH for a couple of years and we have a top 6 LW who is big plays tough and can snipe with all but the very best of them.
I want us to draft Mantha badly.
