Same goes for Mantha
Boone Jenner and Scott Laughton are quality prospects, guys you would want on your side in a game like tonight's, I'd be happy to get a prospect of that caliber at #25 in any draft.

I don't know why you are viewing McCarron and Hartman in such a different light, they are both ''character'' forwards (and I disagree, we don't have enough of them, especially among our prospect ranks). McCarron has tremendous size, but Hartman is a better skater and has better hand skills. If things go well, both can become top 6 forwards, but I think Hartman's floor is higher - he'd likely be an Andrew Shaw in the worst case scenario. McCarron could be the next Brad Winchester in the worst case scenario.

You were comparing Hartman to Peverley, but Hartman is a lot more like Marchand since he's an agitator, only even more willing to answer the bell with his fists.
